Brown v. Board of Education Turns 60 This Year


On May 17, 1954, with the Brown v. Board of Education decision, the Supreme Court unanimously declared separate but equal education to be unconstitutional. In honor of the 60th anniversary of this landmark decision, SSU professors Steve Estes (History) Kim Hester-Williams (English/AMCS), Erma Jean Sims (Education), and others will discuss how Brown v. Board of Education continues to influence race relations and politics. Join us on February 19, 2014 @ noon in Schulz 3001. Learn about the impacts of this important decision, and the work people continue to do to ensure its legacy.
