The 1954 Project aims to realize the unkept promise of Brown v. Board of Education
In 1954, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that racial segregation in public schools was unconstitutional. But the full promise of the Brown v. Board of Education decision was never realized. Not only does segregation continue in public schools, Black teachers, school leaders and students were left on the margins of the education system that developed in its wake. Even now, they remain marginalized.
