This symposium, anchored in reflections on Brown v. Board of Education and the federal 1964 Civil Rights Act, will analyze the way school desegregation and integration have unfolded across the country by examining the Supreme Court’s decisions in desegregation cases arising out of Detroit, Kansas City, and Seattle. It will consider how the problems and potentials identified could continue to unfold in the years to come. Participants will include prominent university faculty from across the country and parties to school desegregation litigation, including educators and attorneys for the government and plaintiffs.
