7–8 p.m. on Zoom

With Executive Director Ivan Henderson and Board Member Karen Ingram

It was in 1954 that the U.S. Supreme Court declared segregation in public schools illegal, calling it “inherently unequal.” Delaware was one of four states, and the District of Columbia, party to the legal suit, Brown v Board of Education, that challenged this system. The Delaware Historical Society and its Mitchell Center for African American Heritage are marking the 70th anniversary of this decision with a tour of historical sites on Saturday, May 18. This evening’s program will describe the half-day tour at sites associated with the Brown decision and the continuing importance of desegregation efforts. Join us to learn more! Hosted by Westminster’s Peace & Justice Work Group.
