This event marks seven decades since the landmark Supreme Court decision that declared state laws establishing separate public schools for black and white students to be unconstitutional. As we gather to commemorate this historic occasion, we invite you to be a part of the festivities that honor the legacy of Brown v. Board and reflect on the progress made in the pursuit of educational equality. The Homecoming Celebration promises a vibrant atmosphere with inspiring speakers, thought-provoking discussions, and engaging activities that highlight the significance of former students, faculty, and staff of Buchanan Elementary School, McKinley Elementary School, Monroe Elementary School, and Washington Elementary School.

Brown v. Board of Education NHP will come together with fellow community members, educators, and advocates to share in the spirit of unity and progress. Whether you have a personal connection to the case or are simply passionate about fostering inclusivity in education, this celebration is an opportunity to reflect on our shared history, acknowledge the challenges ahead, and renew our commitment to creating a more equitable future for all. Join us in honoring the courage of those who stood for justice in 1954 and in shaping a brighter, more inclusive tomorrow for generations to come.
