The inspiring interior of the Kansas Capitol promises to become more so with Gov. Mark Parkinson's signing last week of a law setting in motion the creation and installation of a mural commemorating the state's role in the nation's school desegregation. State Sen. Oletha Faust-Goudeau, D-Wichita, co-sponsored the measure, which admirably swept the Senate but drew three "no" votes in the House, including state Rep. Joe McLeland, R-Wichita. The mural, to be privately funded, will add the U.S. Supreme Court decision in Brown v. the Topeka Board of Education to the history represented in the building's artwork, which includes John Steuart Curry's famous depiction of abolitionist John Brown. Along with the outstanding national historic site at Topeka's former Monroe School dedicated to the Brown decision, the mural will help ensure that future Kansans understand their state's rich legacy in the civil rights struggles.
