Brown v. Board of Education: The Legacy

Saturday, February 16 | 2:00 pm

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

This year marks the 65th anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education. Occupying a unique place in the pantheon of U.S. Supreme Court decisions, Brown has become a metaphor for examining our progress toward becoming the “more perfect union” envisioned by the framers of the United States Constitution.
This Black History Month talk will be an opportunity to reflect upon the meaning of Brown v. Board in the flow of United States history, the challenges presented by the case, and the promises yet to be realized. It also provides a setting to consider the unique role of Michigan in charting the course that Brown has taken since the case was decided in the early years of the 20th Century’s civil rights era. Presented by Professor Ronald C Woods, J.D. Professor, Department of Africology and African American Studies at Eastern Michigan University. Sponsored by the National Endowment for the Humanities.
