Brown vs. Board

Today, yes it is Saturday, I took a field trip to the Brown vs. Board of Education site for my special education class. It was a very historical and informational trip. For those of you who do not know the history of the Brown vs. the Board of Education ruling, it was a huge Civil Rights case which ended segregation between all white and all black schools. The historical site is in Topeka, KS at one of the original all black schools. The building is in amazing condition with the original floors and water fountains still in tacked. Some of the pictures are of the building itself, the water fountains (thanks for modeling Liz!), quotes, shackles which where used on slaves, and a map of where segregation was a part of everyday life. It was all very moving.
