Hundreds walk for 60th Anniversary of Brown v. Board of Ed. decision

Hundreds of teachers, state leaders and Topekans stretched their legs today to celebrate the 60th Anniversary of a historic event. The momentous Brown v. Board of education court decision came down 60 years ago Saturday.

To celebrate the huge accomplishment, people joined in a legacy walk from the Brown v. Board National Historic Site to the steps of the Statehouse.

There they rallied to raise awareness and importance of education in our country. Rally organizers say, there’s still more to be done for our kids. One of the speakers was the granddaughter of Mrs. Lucinda Todd, one of the thirteen plaintiffs in the Brown v. Board case.
