StoryCorps: Legacy of Brown v. Board in Topeka (Annette Wims & Carolyn Wims-Campbell)

Annette Wims (left) interviews her aunt, Carolyn Leona Wims Campbell, about growing up in Topeka, in the shadow of segregation.

As part of last year's 60th anniversary of "Brown versus the Topeka Board of Education," the Kansas Humanities Council sponsored a local StoryCorps project, where area residents shared their memories about growing up in the shadow of segregation. Today, we listen in as Annette Wims interviews her aunt, Carolyn Wims-Campbell. Carolyn Wims was just a toddler when her father died, leaving her to be raised by her mother and grandmother. 


That's Carolyn Wims-Campbell, who was interviewed by her niece Annette Wims. The two women took part in a local StoryCorps project last year, marking the 60th anniversary of Brown v. Board. The project was sponsored by the Kansas Humanities Council with help from the Topeka and Shawnee County Public Library and the Brown v. Board National Historic Site.
