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

Bad, College, and Meek Mill: Court Clerk Who Asked Meek Mill For Money During His Probation Hearing Has Been Fired @balleralert Court Clerk Who Asked Meek Mill For Money During His Probation Hearing Has Been Fired - blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The court clerk who asked Meek Mill for money for her son’s tuition has been fired, TMZ reports. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The incident occurred during Meek’s probation violation hearing. Wanda Chavarria reportedly slipped the rapper a note, asking him to help her fund her son’s college education. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In the letter, Chavarria claimed her credit was so bad that she would not be able to “secure a loan or co-sign a loan” for her son. Since the rapper is a Philly native, she believed he’d be inclined to help her out. However, things backfired when word got out about the note. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ At the time, Chavarria was serving as a clerk for Judge Genece Brinkley, who is facing heat for sentencing Meek to 2 to 4 years in prison for violating probation. Although Chavarria claims Brinkley had no idea about the note, according to TMZ, Meek’s lawyers say the clerk asked out loud in earshot of the judge. However, it remains unclear if Meek’s sentence will be reviewed based on Chavarria’s inappropriate behavior.

He has some in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, and he just recently opened one in Miami. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, he has now decided to expand. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On Monday, Gokce had the grand opening of the newest restaurant to be added to the food chain in the United States, and it’s in none other than midtown Manhattan. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The New York establishment is located in the former China Grill in the CBS Black Rock building at 60 W. 53rd Street. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The new location is Gokce’s thirteenth restaurant and he has plans to bring one to London if this one does well. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Will you be making a visit?
