These conference proceedings are separated into three areas: (1) presentations by individuals who have played important roles in desegregation; (2) presentations on contemporary issues; and (3) the continuing challenge of providing equal educational opportunity to all. Among the topics included in the first section are the social and legal history building up to Brown vs. Board of Education case, the implications of Brown, and Delaware's contribution to Brown. Issues such as busing, the continuing validity of integration as a predominant goal in the search for quality education, bilingual education, the emerging meaning of equal educational opportunity, Chicano education, and outlooks for the future are included in the second section. Another aspect of the Brown decision and the civil rights movement, the decision's relevance to white Americans, and the need for racial harmony are discussed in the third section. (AM)
