Life and Legacy of Linda Brown

Last week, Linda Brown of the famous Brown v. Board of Education supreme court case, passed away at the age of 75 in Topeka, Kansas.  Brown became famous at the age of nine after her father attempted to enroll her in the all-white Sumner Elementary School near their Kansas home. Because she was African-American, her enrollment was denied and her father, Oliver Brown, filed a lawsuit against the Topeka Board of Education. Several other plaintiffs joined and the case was eventually heard by the Supreme Court of the United States.

One of the great things about the internet is its ability to bring the world into the confines of the classroom. Through the internet, students are able to go places that would be hard or nearly impossible to reach otherwise and they’re able to share experiences typically too remote for most people to experience. One of the great ways to do this is through the use of livecams that allow students to share an experience in real time as it’s happening.
