The Brown Lecture, now in its 16th year, was inaugurated by the American Educational Research Association (AERA) in 2004 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Brown v. Board of Education decision by the U.S Supreme Court in 1954.

Dr. Prudence L. Carter

In the final opinion of the landmark school segregation case that followed Brown, Cooper v. Aaron (1958), the term “desegregation” was intentionally used, rather than “integration,” in order to soften the ire of those opposed to the Brown vs. Board of Education decision. The judges deemed the former term to a “shade less offensive” than the latter.

In the 2019 Brown Lecture, eminent sociologist and education researcher Carter will reverse this logic and discuss why educational practices of “radical inclusion” are “a shade less offensive” today than mere desegregation, in light of the persistence of educational disparities by race, ethnicity, and class. Carter will draw on her own research and a body of other social science evidence, to show why societies marred by social and economic divides continue to struggle with the realization of integration in schools and communities. In her commentary on the multiple dimensions of educational inequality, Carter will highlight policies and evidence-based practices that have the potential to bring us closer to equity in schools and society.
