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

April 23 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Florida Press Educational Services, the Tampa Bay Times Newspaper in Education program, Community Tampa Bay and Foundation for a Healthy St. Petersburg 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 ever decided by the U.S. Supreme Court. On May 17, 1954, Chief Justice Earl Warren delivered the unanimous decision of the Court, stating that We conclude that in the field of public education the doctrine of separate but equal has no place. Separate educational facilities are inherently unequal. This landmark decision began the long battle toward school integration in Florida and nationwide.

Doors open at 5:30 pm, followed by a panel discussion and Q&A. Featured panelists will include Dr. Raymond Arsenault, John Hope Franklin Professor of Southern History, University of South Florida, St. Petersburg; Fred Hearns, Curator of Black History, Tampa Bay History Center; and Chloe Coney, CEO of Community Enterprise Group, LLC.

There is no charge to attend this event, but registration is required.

Funding for this panel discussion is provided in part with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities and in partnership with the Florida Press Educational Services. Any views, findings, conclusions or recommendations expressed in this program do not necessarily represent those of Florida Humanities or the National Endowment for the Humanities.
