Biden signs bill expanding, renaming Brown v. Board of Education NHP

In a move likely to bring more attention to the nation's Civil Rights history, President Biden on Thursday signed legislation that redesignates the Brown v. Board of Educaton National Historic Site as a "national historical park," and adds properties under that umbrella.

The law calling for the name change, championed by a bipartisan coalition in Congress,  adds two school sites  in South Carolina to the historical park upon acquisition by the National Park Service, and designates schools in Delaware, Virginia, and the District of Columbia as affiliated areas of the National Park Service.
