Brown v. Board of Education National Historic Site

1515 SE Monroe Street in Topeka, Kansas
The former Monroe Elementary School is now an interactive museum where visitors can get an intimate look at the history behind the U.S. Supreme Court's historic Brown v. Board of Education case in 1954, where the high court ruled "separate but equal" facilities for Black and white students violated the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
