C . — Secretary of the Interior Deb Haaland traveled to South Carolina today to highlight the Interior Department’s commitment to help tell a more complete story of America . Secretary Haaland , National Park Service ( NPS ) Director Chuck Sams and Congressman James E . Clyburn visited sites that will soon be part of the Brown v . Board of Education National Historical Park . President Biden signed the Brown v . Board of Education National Historical Park Expansion a......nd Redesignation Act into law in May , providing for inclusion of additional related sites in the National Park System to reflect a more complete story of the landmark 1954 U . S . Supreme Court decision that outlawed segregation in public schools . In Summerton , Secretary Haaland and the group toured Summerton High School and Scott’s Branch High School . Built in 1936 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places , Summerton High School was an all - white school that refused to admit Black students , prompting the Briggs v . Elliott case which challenged school segregation . Built in 1951 under the guise of providing facilities comparable to those for white students , Scott’s Branch High School served as an “equalization school for Black students . Along with other sites in Delaware , Virginia and the District of Columbia , these two school sites will be added to the Historical Park upon acquisition by NPS . The group also visited Benedict College to highlight investments to preserve Historically Black Colleges and Universities ( HBCUs ) . Established in 1870 during the Reconstruction Era , Benedict College initially trained teachers and preachers but later grew to include more traditional academic and trade professions . The college has received $3 million from NPS’ HBCU grant program which helps document , preserve and stabilize historic structures on the campuses of HBCUs . In 2022 , NPS is investing $9 . 7 million in 21 projects across 9 states to preserve noteworthy districts , buildings and sites on HBCU campuses that honor the past and tell the ongoing story of these vital institutions . Secretary Haaland and the leaders group later celebrated a new cooperative agreement between NPS and the University of South Carolina’s Center for Civil Rights Research to conserve and better understand American civil rights history . With a $3 . 4 million investment , NPS and the Center will advance much - needed scholarship and serve as a national model for interdisciplinary work in civil rights history , research , and education . The partnership will support expansion of the Center’s work and establish new ways to deepen the understanding of pivotal moments and people in the American civil rights movement . ### Was this page helpful Yes No This page was not helpful because the content: Has too little informationHas too much informationIs confusingIs out - of - date Leave this field blank
