With an Even Hand: Brown v. Board at Fifty

On May 17, 1954, the Supreme Court issued a decision in Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka, Kansas, declaring that “separate educational facilities are inherently unequal.” This decision was pivotal to the struggle for racial desegregation in the United States. This exhibition commemorates the fiftieth anniversary of this landmark judicial case.

The physical exhibition was on view May 13 – November 13, 2004

This exhibition and its programming were made possible by the generous support of AARP, Anthony and Beatrice Welters, and AmeriChoice, a UnitedHealth Group Company.

Look for these “Discover!” labels that will spotlight items of special interest to kids and families!
