Pat's Guide to Glasgow West End

Recommended Posts

Tribute to Linda Brown who has died aged 76. At the age of 9, in 1951, she attempted, with three others, to enrol in an all-white elemenatry school in Topeka, Kansas.

The 1954 Brown vs. Board of Education Supreme Court ruling struck down legal segregation in US schools, her father being the lead

plaintiff in in the case. A brave little girl and a pivotal moment for Civil Rights.
