250-350 Words, Bluebook Citation- Brown v. Board of Education: Letter to the Editor

This week, we jet forward about 150 years in time. Airplane Toy A lot has happened during those years. Among the highlights: Manifest Destiny westward expansion, American Civil War, Reconstruction, Industrial Revolution, continuous fighting in Europe, including two World Wars, the start of both the Atomic Age and the Cold War. School Segregation Banned NewspaperThis week’s destination is the Letters to the Editor Bureau of the local newspaper in Topeka, Kansas in 1954.
