  • Description

    Today was a very special day for 16-year-old Minniejean Brown, late of Little Rock, Arkansas.

    A week ago she was expelled from Central High School after a series of racial incidents. Today, on a scholarship, she entered the new Lincoln School in upper Manhattan. How did she feel? Well, the words come easy. "It's just marvellous, it's lovely," said Minniejean.

    In Little Rock she was one of mine Negro students attending school under federal troop protection. She says a certain hard core of white pupils was determined to get more of the Negroes expelled before long.

    But for Minniejean, the clouds of tension are behind. When she walked into class today....it was a very different atmosphere. She greeted fellow-students, looked around and said: "I'm glad just to be another student."
