"KPR Presents" Kansas Public Radio, 91.5 FM

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 the town whose name became part of the landmark case.

The oral history project is a collaboration between the Topeka-Shawnee County Public Library, Brown v. Board of Education National Historic Site, and the Kansas Humanities Council.

StoryCorps is a national nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide Americans of all backgrounds and beliefs with the opportunity to record, share, and preserve the stories of our lives.
