Moton Mondays: Understanding the Brown v. Board of Education Expansion Act
January 25 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Join Moton Executive Director Cameron Patterson as he facilitates a conversation with staff members from the National Trust for Historic Preservation regard an exciting new project to #TellTheFullStory regarding Brown v. Board of Education.
In partnership with the offices of House Majority Whip James E. Clyburn (D-SC) and Senator Chris Coons (D-DE), the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s African American Cultural Heritage Action Fund is working with local partners including the Robert Russa Moton Museum to join the stories of these places with those already being told at the Brown v. Board of Education National Historic Site in Topeka, Kansas, creating opportunities for public education and interpretation while allowing buildings to maintain their current uses as schools, community centers, and offices.
This work is an opportunity to give voice to the stories of dozens of parents, students, attorneys, and activists who not only struggled to secure the Brown v. Board decision, but also often weathered the continued fight to integrate in its aftermath.
