14th Amendment Sign

The Brown v. Board of Education National Historic Site preserves the history and legacy of one of the U.S. Supreme Court's most important decisions at the segregated Monroe Elementary School in Topeka.

Take several hours to browse the site and learn about how segregation came to be, the leading up to the case, and the Supreme Court's decision to overturn racial segregation in the country.

Inside the site, visitors can explore exhibits on the legacy of the case, watch a 30-minute film which traces the history of racism and segregation in America, and go through a gallery of the educational barriers African-Americans faced throughout the early 19th and 20th centuries.

Outside, relax and enjoy a nature walk, take the kids to a historic playground, and eat at the picnic tables.
