McKinley Elementary School

Brown Sites in Topeka

The old McKinley Elementary School was one of the four segregated schools for African American children in Topeka. During the Brown case the children of plaintiff Zelma Henderson attended school here. After attending Monroe, Oliver Brown's daughters, Linda and Terry, also attended this school once their father received his assignment to the nearby St. Mark AME Church.

The fourth segregated school was Washington Elementary in East Topeka. It was demolished as part of a street expansion.


Children of the following plaintiffs attended Washington School:
Shirla Flemming
