More on the National Trust's Work on Brown v. Board of Education

One of the most significant landmark cases in the history of the United States, the 1954 Supreme Court decision Brown v. Board of Education compiled cases from five communities across the South, East, and Midwest to desegregate American schools. Late last year, the National Trust identified work related to expanding the narrative surrounding Brown v. Board as one of our National Treasures.

In addition to our discussion about Dred Scott v. Sandford and Plessy v. Ferguson, this session will also provide an update on the work to preserve the full story of Brown v. Board.
