Brown v. Board of Education National Historic Site Book


This guide to Brown v. Board of Education National Historical Park provides an overview of the legal history of the 1954 United States Supreme Court decision that declared segregation in public schools unconstitutional. Learn about the groundwork laid by activists like W.E.B. DuBois and the integral efforts of the NAACP, Thoroughgood "Thurgood" Marshall, and other important people who dedicated their lives to the cause of equity in education. Many people have heard of this pivotal case, but fewer know the complexities of the cases that were involved and the people who came together to fight for the equal rights of children to experience the valuable opportunities of equitable education. This book, published by Western National Parks Association, makes an excellent companion to a trip to Brown v. Board National Historical Park, and has a place on the coffee table or bookshelf of any history buff, educator, or anyone interested in the history of the fight for equality in the United States.
