Brown v. Board of Education National Historic Site

The former Monroe Elementary School in Topeka, Kansas, is now an interactive museum where visitors can get an intimate look at the history behind the U.S. Supreme Court's historic Brown vs. 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.
