About the Event
With 2014 and 2015 marking major anniversaries of landmark moments in the American struggle for equality—the 60th anniversary of Brown, the 50th anniversary of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, the sesquicentennial of the 13th Amendment, and the 50th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act of 1965—Anderson’s address examines how the constitutional framing of the equality of political power in the Reconstruction era casts a long shadow over American social justice today and continues to shape the pursuit of all forms of equality.

About the Speaker
James D. Anderson (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign), noted expert on American education history and desegregation, has been selected to present the 2014 Brown Lecture on October 23. Learn more

Abstract
In 2014 and 2015, our nation commemorates several landmark moments in its long, unfinished struggle for political and education equality for all. This year, we observe with a mix of gratitude and disquiet the 60th anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education and the 50th anniversary of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. Next year marks the sesquicentennial of the 13th Amendment, abolishing slavery, and the 50th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Read more
 
 
About the Annual Brown Lecture
Print

The Annual Brown Lecture in Education Research is designed to feature the important role of research in advancing understanding of equality and equity in education. The Lectureship was inaugurated in 2004 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Brown v. Board of Education decision, in which the U.S. Supreme Court took into account scientific research in issuing its landmark ruling. Each year a distinguished scholar notable for producing significant research related to equality in education is invited to give a public lecture in Washington, D.C.
