Topeka High School

StoryCorps: Legacy of Brown v. Board in Topeka (Bill Bunten & Jack Alexander)

Bill Bunten (left) and Jack Alexander talk about attending school, playing basketball and serving in the military during the time of legal segregation and after segregation legally ended.

Since early February, we've been sharing stories about growing up in Topeka, in the shadow of segregation. As part of the 60th anniversary of "Brown versus the Topeka Board of Education," the Kansas Humanities Council sponsored a local StoryCorps project last year, to record the memories of area residents. Today, we hear from former Topeka Mayor Bill Bunten as he talks to his friend Jack Alexander, a former Topeka city councilman.
