Notes:

"Inspired by the University of Illinois's celebration of the Brown v. Board of Education decision's fiftieth anniversary in 2004, this collection addresses the significance of the Brown decision in the contributors' lives or work in education and civil rights. Several authors describe their personal roles in the Brown case or similar cases, while others examine and illustrate events, performances, and exhibitions that were part of the anniversary commemoration. The book not only explores the repercussions of the Brown decision, but also stands as a historic document in its own right, preserving the reactions of many prominent intellectuals, artists, and activists fifty years after the decision."
