In Memoriam: Zelma Henderson, Brown v. Board of Education

Zelma Henderson, last surviving plaintiff of the historic Brown v. Board of Education case, died last week in Kansas. While Brown v. Board of Education was not a challenge to the right to education for immigrant or refugee children, it remains a pivotal event in the rights of minority children to education in the US and elsewhere. ¬†There are many news reports: search on “zelma henderson brown v. board of education” in google, for example.
