America, Community, and Future: SUMNER AP/SHUTTERSTOCK Linda Brown, Whose Brown v. Board of Education Case Ended Segregation in Schools, Dies Rest in Power, LindaBrown! 💓✊🏾🙇🏾‍♀️ • • • Linda Brown Thompson, who as a young girl was the student at the center of the landmark Supreme Court case Brown v. Board of Education that declared school segregation unconstitutional, has died in Topeka, Kansas. She was 76. The Peaceful Rest Funeral Chapel in Topeka confirmed it is handling funeral arrangements for Brown. Born in 1943, Brown was in third grade in 1950 when she was denied admission to an all-white elementary school in her hometown of Topeka. She lived 20 blocks from her segregated school, but just five blocks from the all-white school. Kansas schools at the time were segregated by state law. Brown's father, Rev. Oliver Brown, sued the school district in 1951. The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) took up the case, which was combined with segregation suits against school districts in other states when it came before the Supreme Court. Future Supreme Court justice ThurgoodMarshall was the lead attorney for the NAACP. In a unanimous ruling in 1954, the court declared school segregation an unconstitutional violation of the 14th Amendment's guarantee of equal protection under the law. The ruling, written by Chief Justice Earl Warren, struck down the "separate but equal" doctrine that had served as the basis for segregation of public facilities since the 1896 case Plessy v. Ferguson. "Sixty-four years ago a young girl from Topeka brought a case that ended segregation in public schools in America," Kansas Gov. Jeff Colyer told the Topeka Capital-Journal. "Linda Brown's life reminds us that sometimes the most unlikely people can have an incredible impact and that by serving our community we can truly change the world." lindabrown brownvsboardofeducation education

Upon further investigation, officials found an adult shoe, a diaper bag and a wallet with an ID that belonged to 21-year-old Jasmine Dunbar. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As a result, officials contacted Dunbar’s family, who had confirmed the baby belonged to the 21-year-old. But, where was the young woman? Dunbar’s godmother told police that her goddaughter had organized a meeting with Antwaun Ware to discuss establishing paternity for her 7-month-old daughter. But, she never returned. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When officials finally got in contact with Ware, he said he picked Dunbar and her daughter up and dropped her back off after they got into an argument over the paternity test. But, he later changed his story, allegedly telling officials that he physically assaulted the woman and left her in a field. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As for the baby, he reportedly told officials that he dropped the baby near his girlfriend’s house because he thought someone would retrieve her and take care of her. However, after leaving the baby on the side of the road, he told officials that he returned to Dunbar’s body and set her on fire with gasoline and watched her body burn. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As a result, Ware was charged with one count of first-degree murder, one count of kidnapping and one count of abandonment of a body, and child abuse.

Starski’s daughter, Tiffany Smith, confirmed the cause of death. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Starski was among a core group of DJ pioneers that include DJKoolHerc, AfrikaBambaataa, GrandmasterFlash and GrandWizardTheodore.

Apparently, Bones, and Family: 14-Year-Old Boy Who Traveled To Miami From Cuba To Remove 10-Pound Tumor From His Face, Has Died @balleralert 14-Year-Old Boy Who Traveled To Miami From Cuba To Remove 10-Pound Tumor From His Face, Has Died - blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Last month, a 14-year-old and his family traveled to Miami from Cuba to remove a 10-pound tumor from his face. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Back in September, a Miami specialist offered to assist in the removal of the large tumor after learning of the young boy’s story. Emanuel Zayas was diagnosed with polyostotic fibrous dysplasia, which reportedly replaces bones with fibrous tissue. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ At age 11, what physicians believed to be a pimple, turned out to be an ossifying fibroma- which has since grown into a 10-pound tumor. According to reports, the tumor began to affect Zayas’ breathing, as well as the bone structure of his face. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Although Cuban doctors refused to perform the risky surgery, a specialist at UHealth-University of Miami Health System offered his assistance. In turn, the family flew out to Miami, grateful to God that the specialist agreed to work on their son’s potentially fatal tumor. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, since then, the family has confirmed that Zayas has unfortunately passed in the wake of the 12-hour procedure. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "I am saddened by the fact that we are losing him and that the physiological stress of the surgery was apparently too much for his compromised anatomy," the chief of oral and maxillofacial surgery for the University of Miami Health System said in a statement to the Herald. "Our hopes of saving his life, and with that allowing him a better quality of life, were not realized." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "Our condolences and prayers for Emanuel's family and the loss of a very brave young man," Marx said, according to NBC 6. "Another angel has arrived in heaven."
