Newsmakers: Minnijean Brown Trickey

Minnijean Brown Trickey (BSW Laurentian, MSW Carleton) is one of the nine African American students (known as the “Little Rock Nine”) who collectively resisted opposition to desegregation to enter Little Rock Central High School in 1957 in Arkansas, with protection from federal troops. 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 is a social worker who has dedicated her life to social justice.

She visited Halifax recently and spoke at Dalhousie University about her experiences, the relevance of Obama’s win in the US election and more.
