Words That Made the Difference: BROWN vs the BOARD OF EDUCATION, a play written and directed by Dr. Cindy Acker, Ed.D. is based on actual events in the fight to end school segregation and is set in the courtrooms of history, capturing the real words in court cases that culminated in Brown vs. The Board of Education.
As California has faced a recent court order to desegregate a school district (Marin County, 2019), Brown vs. the Board of Education has continued meaning as the nation struggles with the need to be an anti-racist society. Our recent awareness of pervasive discrimination still present in our nation is a reminder that the work for equity and social justice is still crucial.
