Brown v. Board: Cheryl Brown Henderson and the Legacy of the 1954 Supreme Court Case
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.

As part of the work of the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s African American Cultural Heritage Action Fund, we will continue to broaden our understanding of Brown v. Board of Education through a webinar series that will highlight the people, places, and stories from each of the states involved in the landmark case.

Join us for the first webinar in this series featuring Cheryl Brown Henderson, the founding president of the Brown Foundation for Educational Equity, Excellence and Research and one of the authors of the recently released "Recovering Untold Stories: An Enduring Legacy of the Brown v. Board of Education Decision."

In addition to sharing some history about the case, this session will also include updates on the work to preserve and tell the full story of Brown v. Board.
