Brown @ 70

When Brown v. Board of Education was decided in 1954, making school segregation illegal across the United States, it changed everything—and nothing. Communities everywhere became battlegrounds for testing the limits of the decision, in the courts and on the streets.

Seventy years later, we’re still grappling with its legacy. Brown @ 70, a series of events from Ohio Humanities, honors that legacy and our state’s role in the civil rights movement.
