Todd Home

Brown Sites in Topeka

The residence at 1007 Jewell was the home of Mrs. Lucinda Todd. Mrs Todd was the NAACP secretary and the first parent to volunteer to be a plaintiff in the Brown case. Ironically, she had been a teacher in the Topeka Public Schools. She is credited with writing the letter to the National NAACP requesting their assistance with the local case.  A lot of the strategy was planned in this house.
