When I was a 22 year old teacher I walked into my first job with Federal Marshals right behind me there to enforce Brown v the Board of Education of Topeka. I'm in the process of writing a memoir about my life after this historic event.
I have found that many of us have riveting stories of the implementation and results of this ruling. On my wesite: Go to file/open: Donna F. Orchard. Then check contact at the top and you can publish your story on the blog and have discussions of others who are interested in this period of history. Educators, parents, grandparents, students, all are welcome.
I hope to have my book out for the 60th Anniversary in 2014. Share your stories that you have been telling family and friends for years. I think it should be an extraordinary experience.
