Separate Is Not Equal: Commemorating the 70th Anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education

March 27 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Florida Press Educational Services, Mosaic Miami, the Keys Citizen, and Sanctuary of the Arts present a community discussion on the history and continuing impact of Brown v. Board of Education in the Sunshine State. Brown v. Board of Education was one of the most pivotal court cases decided by the U.S. Supreme Court. On May 17, 1954, Chief Justice Earl Warren delivered the unanimous decision of the Court, stating We conclude that in the field of public education, the doctrine of separate but equal has no place. This landmark decision began the long battle toward school integration in Florida and nationwide.
