More about Minnijean Brown-Trickey
Although all of the Nine experienced verbal and physical harassment during their year at Central, Brown was first suspended, and then expelled for retaliating against the daily torment. She moved to New York and lived with Drs. Kenneth B. And Mamie Clark, the African American psychologists whose social science findings played a critical role in the Brown v. Board of Education Supreme Court case.
In the intervening years, until the present day, Minnijean Brown-Trickey has not ceased to fight for social justice through the principles and methods of nonviolence. We are honored to have her visit our USF community in an intergenerational dialogue to discuss the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. with Fr. Paul Fitzgerald, Dr. Andrea Spero and USF student Metyia Phillips.With Rafael Jesús González, Poet Laureate of Berkeley.
