Administration Redesignates Historic Segregation Sites

Interior Secretary Haaland present for signing of bill.

President Biden recently signed the Brown v. Board of Education National Historical Park Expansion and Redesignation Act into law alongside Secretary of the Interior Deb Haaland. This law adds to and redesignates the locations of historic schools as part of the National Park System. These schools were directly involved in the Supreme Court case that deemed school segregation unconstitutional, and are now officially registered as historic sites.

“The expansion of Brown v. Board of Education National Historical Park to recognize sites in South Carolina, Delaware, Virginia, and Washington, D.C. helps us to more fully tell the story of the struggle to end school segregation,” said Secretary Haaland. “The Supreme Court’s finding that racially segregated schools were unconstitutional was unquestionably a pivotal event in our nation’s civil rights struggle and we are honored to serve as stewards to part of that history.” 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • That the president would use his influence to build unity and harmony in the nation.
  • That God would be glorified through the new legislation redesignating sites to the National Park System.
  • For Secretary Haaland to be led by God in how to lead the Interior Department.
