NPR : 'Brown v. Board of Education' Letters to Eisenhower -- 50 Years Ago Today

Fifty Years ago today the Supreme Court condemned separate schools for blacks and whites in America. NPR today aired a number of letters that people wrote to then President Dwight D. Eisenhower. The letters are a candid snapshot of the range of American feelings on the subject of school segregation. Taking into account the change in attitudes we have seen in the past fifty years, the letters seem especially instructive in what changes we may expect on the subject of gay marriage in the next fifty years.
