Kansas in the 20th Century

By the beginning of the 20th century, Kansas had become one of the leading agricultural states in the United States, and the demand for wheat increased even more during the First World War. The Great Depression of the thirties for Kansas was exacerbated by severe droughts and dust storms, due to which many residents of the state were forced to leave their homes.

During the Second World War, Kansas not only dramatically increased agricultural production, but also became one of the largest aircraft manufacturing centers in the United States of America.

In the early fifties of the XX century, Kansas was at the center of the struggle for the civil rights of black American citizens. Thirteen parents from Topeka, on behalf of their twenty children, filed a lawsuit against the city board of education (see more about secondary education in the USA). The essence of the lawsuit was a protest against segregation (that is, racial separation) in public schools, it was supported by the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. The case reached the US Supreme Court, which in 1954 ruled that such practice was contrary to the US Constitution. The decision in the case known as Brown v. Board of Education was a significant achievement for civil rights activists in the United States.

In recent decades, the economy of Kansas, known as the “State of Wheat and Sunflowers”, has become increasingly important for mining (eighth largest in the US in terms of oil and natural gas production) and industry, primarily aircraft manufacturing. The ongoing exodus of Kansas ‘s population from rural areas to cities is also associated with changes in the economy.
