The Scholar-Activist of Brown: Scholars Reflect on the Intellectual Contributions to the Historic Desegregation Case: Brown@50-- How Far have We Come?
Black Issues in Higher Education, v21 n7 p26 May 2004
When asked by Thurgood Marshall during the Brown v. Board of Education desegregation case to join a team of scholars to answer questions posed by the U.S. Supreme Court about the intent of the framers of the U.S. Constitution's 14th Amendment, Dr. John Hope Franklin didn't hesitate to accept. This document contains personal accounts of the famous court case, along with statistical data on African American students in the school systems. This document also contains excerpts from the book "The Unfinished Agenda of Brown v. Board of Education," which is a collection of essays offering a range of views both thought provoking, and at times, controversial.
