TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - Students got some hands-on learning of lessons they've been reading about in their school books.

Ninth grade language arts students from Lansing toured the Ritchie House and the Brown versus Board of Education museum in Topeka Monday.

The students are reading "To Kill a Mockingbird," in which race relations plays a pervasive role. They participated in sessions about "bleeding Kansas," the underground railroad and the Exoduster movement.

Students also studied the civil rights movement, focusing on the Brown versus Board case.
