Today in history

On this day in 1954, the U.S. Supreme Court hands down an unanimous decision in Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka, ruling racial segregation in public educational facilities is unconstitutional.

The historic decision brought an end to federal tolerance of racial segregation.

Here’s the rest of the story:


Today — Rain is a good thing…scattered showers and thunderstorms. Highs in the mid 70s to lower 80s. Southeast winds 10 to 20 mph.

Tonight — Keep it coming… isolated showers and thunderstorms. Lows in the 50s. Southeast winds 15 to 25 mph decreasing to 10 to 20 mph after midnight. Gusts up to 35 mph.
