The Suburban Promise of  Brown  
Addressing Challenges to Sustaining
Racially Diverse Schools and Communities

A Symposium of Ideas, Solutions and Possibilities on the 60th Anniversary of  Brown v. Board of Education

Once seen as havens for middle-class whites fleeing the cities, the American suburbs have become far more diverse, putting them at the epicenter of the struggle for integration and equal opportunity. Much progress is being made around these issues, especially in the area of  fair housing , but the crisis of separate and unequal  schools  is as salient in the suburbs as anywhere.

Speakers include:

Xavier de Souza Briggs , Vice President of the Ford Foundation

Sheryll Cashin , Professor of Law at Georgetown University

Gloria Ladson-Billings , Assistant Vice Chancellor of Academic Affairs at University of Wisconsin-Madison

Jeannie Oakes , Director of Educational Opportunity and Scholarship Programs at the Ford Foundation and President-elect of the American Educational Research Association
