WASHINGTON, DC – On Thursday, May 29 (today),  members of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) will host “Educational Success for Black Men and Boys in a Post Brown v. Board of Education Era,” to discuss policies and priorities that will help eliminate systemic barriers for educational success. The panel discussion is open to the public and will be streamed live at cbc.fudge.house.gov.

HOSTS:

Rep. Frederica S. Wilson

WHEN: Thursday, May 29, 2014

WHY: In May 1954, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Brown v. Board of Education that “separate but equal” was unconstitutional. Yet after six decades, equal access to a quality education is not a reality for millions of students, many of whom live in poverty and are children of color. This panel will discuss what policymakers, educators and community leaders can do together to close this gap. In addition to the panel discussion, the National Education Association will present research highlighting programs that have helped African American male students excel in school.

The panel discussion is open to the public and will be streamed live at cbc.fudge.house.gov.
