Linda Brown, who lent her name to what is arguably the most famous case in US history, has died in Kansas, at the age of 78.

Brown v. Bd. of Education of Topeka, KS (1954) ended segregation and the 'separate but equal doctrine' in 1954, and foreshadowed the 1964 Civil Rights Act, which created a revolution in US race relations.
