The Topeka school that figured in Brown vs. the Board of Education has closed. A group of educators including Cheryl Brown Henderson, sister of plaintiff Linda Brown, wants to use the building for a charter school for at-risk students. Chalkboard observes:
What was once a battlefield between whites and blacks could eventually emerge as a public charter school that serves special needs students of all races.
Martin Luther King III celebrated the anniversary of Brown vs. the Board last week by visiting a charter school in Albany, New York.
