Brown v. Board of Education, the Stamp

The US Postal Service commemorated the 50th anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education with a stamp.  The artwork is “The Lamp” by Romare Bearden.  How far have we come in half a century?  If you haven’t checked out School: The Story of American Public Education, it’s a great read to begin answering that question.

Note: this image appears as part of Google Arts & Culture, an exciting online repository for artwork for around the world.
