February 22, 2015: Last year marked the 60th anniversary of the historic desegregation decision in Brown v. the Topeka Board of Education. To celebrate the anniversary, the Kansas Humanities Council joined with NPR's StoryCorps project to interview area residents about growing up in Topeka during and after the landmark case.  In celebration of Black History Month, we'll hear many of those interviews.  We'll also preview this year's Kansas Silent Film Festival, which is marking the 100th anniversary of one of the most incendiary and controversial films ever made, The Birth of a Nation
