English Brown v. Board of Education National Historic Site

Brown v. Board of Education National Historic Site was established in Topeka, Kansas, on October 26, 1992, by the United States Congress to commemorate the landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision aimed at ending racial segregation in public schools. On May 17, 1954, the Supreme Court unanimously declared that "separate educational facilities are inherently unequal" and, as such, violated the 14th Amendment to the United States Constitution, which guarantees all citizens "equal protection of the laws."

The site consists of the Monroe Elementary School, one of the four segregated elementary schools for African American children in Topeka, and the adjacent grounds.

Die Brown v. Board of Education National Historic Site ist eine Gedenkstätte vom Typ eines National Historic Site der Vereinigten Staaten. Sie wurde am 26. Oktober 1992 in Topeka, Kansas vom Kongress der Vereinigten Staaten eingerichtet, um an die Grundsatzentscheidung Brown v. Board of Education des Supreme Court zu erinnern. Die Entscheidung beendete die Rassentrennung im öffentlichen Schulsystem der USA. Am 17. Mai 1954 hatte der Supreme Court den getrennten Unterricht für rechtswidrig und insbesondere den 14. Zusatz zur Verfassung verletzend erklärt. Dieser Zusatz garantiert allen Bürgern den „gleichen Schutz vor dem Gesetz“.

Das Gebiet umfasst die Monroe Elementary School, eine der vier Grundschulen für die schwarze Bevölkerung in Topeka, sowie angrenzende Grundstücke.
