"Educate, Don't Segregate": Twenty Legal and Legislative Milestones in Higher Education
Black Issues in Higher Education, v21 n9 p96 Jun 2004
This timeline reflects some of the most significant legal and legislative milestones that have influenced higher education almost as long as Black Issues In Higher Education has been in print. The ongoing legal battles have primarily involved the further desegregation of schools and the use of race and gender in scholarships and university admissions. Most recently, in 2003, a year away from commemorating the 50th anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education, the use of race in college admissions survived--legally--when the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the right of universities to consider race in admissions procedures in order ta achieve a diverse student body.
