Sumner Grade School, Topeka
Creator: Schrock, John Edward
Date: Between 1950 and 1969
Sumner Grade School was a segregated school for whites only that played a prominent role in the desegregation case Brown v. Board of Education. Oliver Brown, an African American and the lead plaintiff in this court case, believed that his daughter should be allowed to attend Sumner School, which was only four blocks from their house. Instead, due to her race, his daughter was required to attend the Monroe School for black children located across town. Sumner was one of eighteen schools for white children located in Topeka during the first half of the twentieth century. In 1987 this building was designated a National Historical Landmark and it is not longer in operation.
