Brown v. Board program debuts

The Brown v. Board of Education commission this week at KU opened a series of programs commemorating the 50th anniversary of the historic decision.


“Race, Law and the American Creed: Examining the Social and Legal Impact of Brown v. Board of Education” was presented Sept. 18 at the Dole Institute of Politics by V.P. Franklin, editor of the Journal of African-American History; David R. Roediger, director of the Center on Democracy in a Multicultural Society at the University of Illinois; and Roger Wilkins, distinguished professor of history at George Mason University in Fairfax, Va.


The series will include programs in San Antonio, Atlanta and New York City. Two more programs will be scheduled in January and February.


The series will culminate March 14 through 17 at KU with a conference on “The Legacies and Unfinished Business of Brown v. Board.”
