We will examine the history and continuing effects of our nation’s failed efforts to achieve racially integrated public schools. Discussions will focus on the aftereffects of the 1954 Brown v. Board of Education case, in which the US Supreme Court struck down the “separate but equal” standard in education and other areas of American life.
Each circle will discuss different short readings as we explore the complex and shifting legacy of this difficult and sometimes violent attempt to achieve racial integration across the United States.
This project is a collaboration with MassHumanities’ statewide initiative, The Harvest: Brown v Board, North & South.
One Saturday morning most months at the First Congregational Church, 43 Silver Street, Greenfield MA 01301. Free childcare, light snacks, everyone welcome.
A film by Dakota filmmaker Sheldon Wolfchild, followed by a discussion facilitated by Strong Oak.
Weaving together oral and written history and traditional Dakota beliefs, this film explains the history of US Supreme Court decisions which created legal dominion over non-Christian people and are the basis of our federal Indian laws and policies to this day.
Film screening will be followed by a discussion facilitated by Strong Oak. for more info
