The Kansas African American Museum will commemorate the 60th anniversary of the landmark decision of Brown v Board of Education by offering a free screening of the film, “With All Deliberate Speed.”


The film reflects on the state of civil rights in America following the Brown vs. Board of Education case. On May 17, 1954, the Supreme Court unanimously declared the doctrine of "separate but equal" was inconsistent with the constitution of the United States.


One day before the anniversary on Friday, May 16, the exhibit and the film will be free and open to the public all day.


Visitors will be able to read the entire Supreme Court decision inside the exhibit, as well as view a special display of photographs in the main gallery from Friday, May 16 to, May 24.
