U.S. Secretary of Education John B. King Jr. Statement on the Anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education
First, I appreciate Kristen Clarke joining us from the Lawyers’ Committee. The Lawyers’ Committee has been a long-time ally of the Department that works to advance civil rights. Today marks the 62nd anniversary of the Brown v. Board of Education decision. With this decision, the Supreme Court made it clear that “separate and unequal” is unconstitutional.
