When we were in Topeka we visited the Brown vs. The Board of Education Historical Site. This is a cool museum run by the National Parks Service and is located in Monroe School, an beautiful old African American elementary school.
Probably the most powerful and disturbing displays in the whole museum was a sort of hallway, with a life sized picture of Elizabeth Eckford and the other black students who integrated a high school in Little Rock, Arkansas at each end. Visitors walked through the tunnel-like hall while giant screens ran actual footage of anti-integration protesters screaming and hurling insults, politicians pounding their fists and yelling, and newscasters reading off headlines about segregation battles.
