May 2019 marks the 65th anniversary of the landmark Brown v. Board of Education decision. To commemorate this milestone, the Center for Education and Civil Rights (CECR) and the Africana Research Center (ARC) are convening a national symposium of education, law, and policy scholars and practitioners at the Pennsylvania State University. Speakers will discuss Brown’s promise of racial integration amidst major contemporary threats to civil rights in education. Panel issues include:
- Policies and Practices Perpetuating Racial Inequality

- Growing Critically Conscious Teachers
The School of Public Policy is a co-sponsor of this event.
