Topeka StoryCorps: Sixty Years of Brown was a city-wide, inter-generational oral history project that explored the legacy of Oliver Brown et al. v. the Board of Education of Topeka, the landmark Supreme Court case that desegregated public schools. Central to the oral histories were the questions: Sixty years later, what does the Brown case mean to Topeka? How is it remembered? The Kansas Humanities Council created and developed this project.

This program was nominated for a 2015 Schwartz Prize.
