StoryCorps: Legacy of Brown v. Board in Topeka (Michael Hooper & Sherman Smith)

Michael Hooper (left) talks to his friend, Sherman Smith, about their experiences in Topeka and their reflections on the Brown vs. Board of Education decision.

This year, 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 StoryCorps project last year. Today, we listen in as Sherman Smith interviews his friend and former co-worker Michael Hooper, who says discrimination still exists in Topeka.
