Law School Examines Brown Ruling, Human Rights

As part of a year-long celebration of the 50th anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education, Columbia Law School presented a discussion on the role this landmark case had in expanding the protection of basic human rights in the United States and abroad. In addition to commemorating the anniversary of the Brown ruling, this event marked 10 years since the end of apartheid in South Africa -- two of the most historic movements forward in advancing civil rights for all people.
