A graduate student conference that looked at the impact of the Brown v. Board of Education decision on American education and society was held this month as part of the commemorative activities for the 50th anniversary of the landmark Supreme Court decision. Coordinated by V.P. Franklin, Professor of History and Education (pictured), the conference looked at the various aspects of segregation-not only in the south and not only in education-that were affected by the decision. Papers presented at the conference are being considered for publication in an upcoming Special Issue of The Journal of African American History devoted to "Brown v. Board of Education, 1954-2004: Fifty Years of Social and Educational Change in the United States."
