Last month, the nation celebrated the 57th Anniversary of the landmark Supreme Court decision known asBrown vs. Board of Education of Topeka which dismantled the legal premise for racially segregated schools in theUnited States. As a conscious American, but more so as a public education advocate, I commemorated the occasion but refused to celebrate it. Not surprisingly, some people were a bit dismayed about my adamant stance to commemorate but not celebrate. After all, I am a direct beneficiary of this decision having been somewhat of an 80′s desegregationist student who attended a predominately white suburbanConnecticut school district for 12 years. But it is precisely for this and other reasons why I was motivated to make this one woman silent protest on May 17.
