—African American Heritage Trail, Washington, DC —

1204 T Street, NWLouise Burrell Miller led a group that successfully sued the DC Board of Education in 1952 to have deaf African American children educated within the District. Until Miller v. the Board of Education, the children, including Miller's young son Kenneth, were sent to boarding schools in Baltimore and Pennsylvania. This was a painful ordeal for children with communication challenges. After the U.S. District Court's decision, the children attended Kendall School for the Deaf, on the grounds of Gallaudet College in Northeast Washington. They were still educated separately from whites until after the U.S. Supreme Court outlawed school segregation in 1954 (Brown v. Board of Education).Caption:Louise Burrell Miller with her son Kenneth and husband Luther Miller, Jr., at the Pennsylvania School for the Deaf, about 1950.Collection of the Miller family.
