StoryCorps: Brown v. Board

Brown v Board of Education 65th anniversary logo

Week of April 5, 2019: As Topeka marks 65 years since the landmark Brown v. Board decision, we hear from Kansans who look back on the days before and after legal segregation. These interviews were recorded for NPR's StoryCorps in 2014. We'll also visit with Shelly London, this year's recipient of the Robert J. Dole Humanitarian Award.
