Brown vs. Board of Education — Julia D. Roundtree 1865-1954

September 25, 2018 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Julia Roundtree was born Julia Duncan in 1865 in Topeka, Kansas and resided there most of her adult life. As a colored teacher she would witness the growth of a thriving segregated community in colored schools that were considered equal. In this program you will see her character come to life as National Park Service Ranger Wilson portrays her, the wife of the principal at a black school, Monroe Elementary where the National Historic Site is today. She tells the story what it was like in Topeka before and after the Brown v. Board of Education court case that ruled in 1954 that “separate but equal” has no place and separate educational facilities are inherently unequal. –
