Nugget 5 – 60th Anniversary of Brown v. Board

I was three years old and living in Topeka, Kansas when the US Supreme Court ruled in Brown vs. Topeka Board of Education that separate but equal schools were unconstitutional. (Its a subject I’ve previously posted about)

These days we are reading that our schools across the nation are more segregated than ever. Ditto Duluth.

In Duluth, however, the critical division is more between rich and poor than racial segregation. That is spelled out in the Editorial that I linked to in the first nugget.

I’m down to about twenty minutes before I leave for church so my nuggets will get more crammed together and more nuggety.
I just finished reading the much touted graphic novel, The Harlem Hellfighters.

More on the Hellfighters in coming posts…… Although its a subject I once alluded to in a much earlier Lincolndemocrat post.
