The Robert Russa Moton Museum is the national center for the study of Civil Rights in Education. Named a National Historic Landmark in 1998, it was the site of the first non-violent student demonstration (1951), an action that led to the Brown vs. Board of Education case before the U.S. Supreme Court which mandated equal education for all Americans.
