Brown v. Board of Education National Historic Site to commemorate the landmark
Supreme Court decision aimed at ending segregation in public schools. On May
17, 1954, the Supreme Court unanimously declared that separate educational
facilities are inherently unequal" and, as such, violate the 14th Amendment
to the United States Constitution, which guarantees all citizens "equal
protection of the laws."

elementary schools for African American children in Topeka, and the adjacent
