Brown v. Board of Education National Historic Site Expansion Act Introduced in House

From Preservation Action:

The Brown v. Board of Education National Historic Site Expansion Act (S. 270, H.R 920) was reintroduced in the House and Senate last week. This important legislation would commemorate and recognize additional historic sites in South Carolina, Delaware, Virginia, and the District of Columbia that contributed to the 1954 landmark Supreme Court case, Brown v. the Board of Education of Topeka. The bill was introduced by Sen.Chris Coons (D-DE) in the Senate and House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-SC) in the House. The Brown v. Board of Education decision is most associated with the case from Kansas, but was actually the compilation of 5 critical court cases. By recognizing the communities and sites associated with these cases, we help to tell a more complete story of the landmark decision that ordered desegregation of American schools.

This bill would establish National Park Service Affiliated Areas in Delaware, Virginia, and the District of Columbia and expand the Brown v. Board of Education National Historic Site to include two historic facilities in Summerton, S.C, the Summerton School and the Scott's Branch School. The legislation was referred to the House Natural Resources Committee and Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee. Urge your members of Congress to support this important legislation!
