In Oliver Brown et al v. Board of Education of Topeka et al, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled against racial segregation in public schools--the same year i was born. Please read my story in, "I Love The Little Rascals", describing the apartheid i saw in our country. (And please read all my Rock 'n' Roll stories. After all, me & Rock 'n' Roll were born the same year, and you can't have one without the other!)

remember seeit on the news ans how upset people were even on the west coast and i was scared even just how they talked

Love Me Tender was my baptism of song as i remember, carried right along like a baby in their arms by the likes of Judy Garland, Al Jolson, Eddie Cantor, Roy Rodgers and Dale Evans, Fats Domino, Chubby Checker, Frank Sinatra, Gary Lewis and the Playboys, Dinah Shore, Patsy Cline, and on up that rainbow of miracles. And nobody of such charm and grace and character and style and handsome beauty always offered so richly by his persona we all knew but with his gentlemanly demeanor we always came to expect and were always given ever made me swoon like the lovely, uniquely blessed Dean Martin. How lucky to be born when i was to see and hear them all.

that was a great moment brown vs the board of education and tittle ix in 1974 for gender equality.
