Title:Reconsidering Brown

In 1954, the Supreme Court ruled that segregated schools were unconstitutional. But 50 years later, legal scholars and historians question the effectiveness of the Court's ruling. In these video segments, professors Gary Orfield, Charles Ogletree, Sheryll Cashin, and Lani Guinier examine school desegregation trends to provide a critical analysis of the Brown ruling.
