Brown Vs. Board Of Education Historical Park By Derek Anderson, Joel Anderson, 2024
- Brown Vs. Board Of Education Historical Park
Brown v. Board of Education National Historical Park was established in Topeka, Kansas, on October 26, 1992, by the United States Congress to commemorate the landmark decision of the U.S. Supreme Court in the case Brown v. Board of Education aimed at ending racial segregation in public schools. The path to equality has been anything but smooth. It's taken courage and dedication by everyday people coming together for a common goal to carry the country toward true equality. Parents, teachers, secretaries, welders, ministers and students drove their communities, and the country along with them, toward justice in a series of often unsteady turns leading to the Brown v. Board Decision. The U.S. Supreme Court decision in Brown v. Board of Education (1954) is one of the most pivotal opinions ever rendered by that body. Monroe Elementary School, now the Brown v. Board of Education National Historic Site, was one of the four segregated schools for African Americans in Topeka, Kansas. The school is an ideal place to remember this landmark decision and to learn about African American struggles for equality. The Monroe School serves as a symbol of the importance of equal educational opportunities. Visitors can walk its halls and imagine what it was like to attend a segregated school and explore the history of Brown v. Board of Education by viewing the exhibits located throughout the building. To commemorate this historic landmark, Anderson Design Group poster artists have hand-rendered an original illustration in the style of vintage 20th-Century travel poster art. This classic design is available as a poster, print, canvas, mini canvas, metal sign, notecard, or postcard.
