Eyes on the Prize: 61st anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education

Join Freedom Factory for a speech by and roundtable discussion with Casey Lartigue Jr. on the 61st anniversary of the May 17, 1954 Brown v. Board of Education decision. The monumental Supreme Court decision struck down legalized segregation in America’s public schools–and challenged the entire system of Jim Crow that was ingrained in American law.

Lartigue, co-editor of the book “Educational freedom in Urban America : Brown v. Board after half a century,” will give a Powerpoint presentation with video clips and photos mixed in with analysis about the lead up to the Brown decision.

By the way, yes, I know media people like anniversary dates with round numbers (10, 25, 50,100), but I gave this speech last year, and an earlier version of it in 2004.
