University of Alabama School of Law will host Civil Rights in the American Story on March 8, 2013.

[O]ver the last four decades, courts and judges have struggled to come to terms with the meaning of the Constitution’s guarantee of equal protection of the law. In that period the record of judicial interpretation and understanding of racial equality has taken the form of a back and forth movement in which first desegregation, then integration with its accompanying need for busing and affirmative action, and now “color blindness” have been the prevailing ideologies.

This conference will explore the “place of civil rights in America’s post-Brown v. Board of Education story.”
