Vanessa Siddle Walker of Emory University will deliver the 2012 Annual Brown Lecture in Education Research. The Lecture will be held Thursday, October 25, at 6:00 p.m. at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in Washington, D.C. Siddle Walker’s Lecture is entitled “Original Intent: Black Educators in an Elusive Quest for Justice.”

As an education historian and scholar of segregation and social equality, Siddle Walker has explored the effects of historical and cultural influences on the teaching and learning of African American children. Siddle Walker is the Samuel Candler Dobbs Professor of Educational Studies at Emory University. She has published widely on the experiences of African American schoolchildren and their teachers in the segregated South. Siddle Walker has been prominently honored with recognitions of her scholarship, including the Grawemeyer Award in Education and AERA’s Early Career Award.

The Brown Lecture 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 scientific research into account in issuing its landmark ruling. Each year a distinguished scholar noted for producing significant research related to equality in education is invited to present this public address in Washington, D.C. The Lecture is intended to illuminate the important role of research in advancing the understanding of equality and equity in education.
