Webinar Series: Brown v. Board of Education

One of the most significant landmark cases in the history of the United States, the 1954 Supreme Court decision Brown v. Board of Education compiled cases from five communities across the South, East, and Midwest to desegregate American schools. Late last year, the National Trust identified work related to expanding the narrative surrounding Brown v. Board as one of our National Treasures.

As part of the work of the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s African American Cultural Heritage Action Fund, we will continue to broaden our understanding of Brown v. Board of Education through a webinar series that will highlight the people, places, and stories from each of the states involved in the landmark case.
