Celebrating Delaware’s Legacy in Brown v. Board of Education

ChristianaCare leaders participated in commemorating the legacy of HCS 107C in Hockessin, Delaware, earlier this month. The school was pivotal to the historic Supreme Court case Brown v. Board of Education which led to school desegregation. Gov. John Carney proclaimed May 17 as Brown v. Board of Education Day in Delaware and the school building is being renovated as a living history and education center.

ChristianaCare’s Ray Blackwell, M.D., chief of Cardiac Surgery and W. Samuel Carpenter, III, Distinguished Chair of Cardiovascular Surgery. and Drew Fennell, chief communications and experience officer, are Friends of HCS 107C, which is leading the effort. Learn more here.
