Early Civil Rights Activism in Topeka, Kansas, Prior to the 1954 "Brown" Case.
Van Delinder, Jean
Great Plains Quarterly, v21 n1 p45-61 Win 2001
Initially, Kansas prohibited school segregation except for elementary schools in cities over 15,000 people. As Topeka annexed areas in the early 20th century, African Americans accustomed to integration filed court challenges, which failed. Subsequent efforts to desegregate Topeka are traced, through the landmark 1954 case. Black teachers in segregated schools sided with segregationists to preserve their jobs. (TD)
