Brown v. Bd. of Education: The Trailblazer -- Linda Brown -- Passes

Linda Brown has passed on. However, she must be remembered for her courageous stance that led to the major Civil Rights decision in Brown v. Bd. of Education. Part of Ms. Borwn's story can be found here: http://people.com/human-interest/linda- … case-dies/

Here is a link to the historic decision from the U.S. Supreme Court's website: https://www.oyez.org/cases/1940-1955/347us483 I highly recommend listening to the arguments and reading the decision.

As you may know, the case consolidated five (5) related cases that were filed separately in Delaware; Kansas; South Carolina; Virginia and  Washington, DC. See this link: https://www.nps.gov/brvb/learn/historyc … ecases.htm

The National Archives also has a very good set of materials on the case: https://www.archives.gov/education/less … wn-v-board

Linda Brown's case was in vain. She transformed NOTHING!! Schools in America is even more segregated.  WE HAVE TO ENFORCE THE LAWS FOR THEY HAVE BEEN INSTITUED TO PROTECT US.  Once a decision has been made in our favor, we have to become more conscious as to how it benefits us.

Calypso, the endemic race problem gives a punch to your comment. But, while there is still a long way to go to fully have equality in the schools, the-late Linda Brown's role regarding the Brown v. Bd. of Education decision is an inspiration. The same is true for all of the litigants in the 5 cases that were consolidated into that historic case.

We have not progressed since that decision was made. Why have a landmark case if it only lit a fire and died. Where  did the embers go to continue that flame? Gripe, I worked for a segregated school. When I got there in 03' there were many Afro-American students and teachers and the school was struggling. The whites in the area got together, formed a committee, and chased them out. When the black students left, they began a campaign to get rid of the minority teachers. I fought and stayed for no one was going to chase me out. Now my bigoted boss moved on to a private school and we have a new boss, his friend, but things are much better. The main thing Gripe is that blacks do not know how to organize themselves and fight. But then again in America, blacks students do so poorly, more broken families, less education and wealth. We are not a strong community in America.
