Community advocates recalled their childhood experiences leading up to and after the Brown v. Board of Education Supreme Court decision that struck down the doctrine of separate but equal established by an earlier high court case. Thurgood Marshall College Fund president and CEO Johnny Taylor made opening remarks.

“The History of Brown v. Board of Education: Through the Eyes of People Who Experienced It” was the first of three Thurgood Marshall College Fund discussions marking the 63rd anniversary of the landmark Brown v. Board of Education decision.
