Sharing the impacts of Brown v Board of Education
Brown v Board 65th Anniversary Collection
The videos in this collection were prepared by the Topeka and Shawnee County Public Library (TSCPL) in partnership with Brown v Board Sumner Legacy Trust. They were recorded on May 13, 2019, at the TSCPL as part Brown v. Board of Education 65th Anniversary: An Unfinished Agenda, an 11-day communitywide observance of the 65th Anniversary of the Brown v. Board decision. Arrangements were made by BvBSLT volunteers, and the interviewer was Donna Rae Pearson of the TSCPL staff. Editing and final formatting were provided by TSCPL. We appreciate this opportunity to preserve important stories.
