Distinguished thinkers discuss the state of public school integration todayPublished in conjunction with the 50th anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education, the landmark Supreme Court decision that declared that separate school facilities were inherently unequal, this collection of essays reflects on how far we've come since 1954-and how far we still need to go. Contributors-black, white, Asian, and Hispanic-include civil rights activist and jurist Derrick Bell, noted journalist Juan Williams, Harvard Law School professor Charles Ogletree, and NPR's Tavis Smiley, who provides an introduction and thoughtful commentary on each essay.
