Event Details: The Inaugural Edmund Gordon Lecture

Description: Date: Thursday, October 10, 2013 Time: 5:00 p.m. reception in Everett Lounge; 6:00 p.m. Lecture in Milbank Chapel To what extent has thinking about education and the making of education policy substantively engaged issues of race and racism? From 1930s radicals debating whether the “class question” trumped the “Negro question,” to Brown v. Board of Education’s focus on segregation, but not unequal power and exploitation, Charles Payne argues that there has been an historic avoidance of thinking directly about race and education. Both an esteemed voice on American civil rights movements and a keen observer of contemporary school reform efforts, Payne will discuss how historical accounts provoke key questions for educators today. Charles Payne is the Frank P. Hixon Distinguished Service Professor in the School of Social Service Administration, University of Chicago
