Although most commonly associated with Topeka, Kansas—now home to the National Park Service’s Brown v. Board of Education National Historic Site—Brown v. Board of Education was actually a portfolio of cases drawn from five communities. On September 17, 2020, the National Trust launched the Brown v. Board of Education National Treasure and collaborated with champions in Congress on the introduction of legislation recognizing the contributions of communities in Delaware, South Carolina, Washington DC, and Virginia. Learn about the multi-year project, hear directly from sites about the past and future of these significant places, and learn how to advocate for passage of the new legislation.
