STATEMENT BY U.S. SENATOR BENJAMIN L. CARDIN ON DEATH OF PHILIP L. BROWN SR.

Philip Brown was a visionary and a role model for all who care about civil rights, justice, and equality.   As a teacher in the Anne Arundel County school system, his commitment to end segregation in our public schools set the groundwork for Brown vs. Board of Education and helped change the course of history.   His quiet grace and determination were an inspiration for those who followed in his footsteps.
