    Linda Brown, 76

    Linda Brown, who as a schoolgirl was at the center of the landmark U.S. Supreme Court case that rejected racial segregation in American schools, died in Topeka, Kan., Sunday afternoon. She was 76.


    Her sister, Cheryl Brown Henderson, confirmed the death to The Topeka Capital-Journal.


    The 1954 U.S. Supreme Court case, Brown v. Board of Education, involved several families, all trying to dismantle decades of federal education laws that condoned segregated schools for black and white students. But it began with Brown's father Oliver, who tried to enroll her at the Sumner School, an all-white elementary school in Topeka just a few blocks from the Browns' home.

    Me too. I laughed during that file footage catching him in Oliver fumbling dodging the press. He almost tripped in the spring thaw. Anyone remember that?

    What a shame, I loved listening to Peter on Ched. I heard he was ill, then in a coma. Rip, Peter Watts.

    The Muppets version

    And Mad Magazine also did a parody, for their musical Star Wars tribute...

    "And soon I'll meet Darth Vader
    and soon after that I'll die.
    And I'm thinking on the whole
    that I'd prefer the River Kwai.

    Sung by Obi-wan Kenobi, of course.
