60th Anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education

On May 17, 2014 the Thurgood Marshall Bar Association (“TMBA”) and Chapman
University will host an event commemorating the 60th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court
decision in Brown v. Board of Education, in which the Court declared state laws establishing
separate public schools for black and white students unconstitutional. The event will be held at
Chapman University, One University Drive, Beckman Hall, 4th Floor, Orange, CA 92866.

Please mark your calendars and join us as we celebrate this landmark decision. The event will
include a reception followed by a panel discussion. The following distinguished speakers will
analyze the historical context of Brown v. Board of Education, how it shapes our communities today,
and what the future may hold for the principles underlying that decision:

Charles Ogletree, renowned Harvard Law professor and author (“The Presumption of Guilt: The Arrest of Henry Louis Gates, Jr”)
Erwin Chemerinsky, leading constitutional scholar, UCI Law School dean
and author (“The Conservative Assault on the Constitution”)
