This event will reflect on the different forms of discrimination encountered by minority/marginalized children in schools in modern US and Europe, sixty years after the ruling of the historic case, Brown v. Board of Education. The panelists will discuss the cross-cutting causes and common concerns of marginalization across continents, with a focus on school segregation. They will look at the paths of segregating minority and/or indigenous children in schools and the impacts for children, families, peers and society.

HRP is co-sponsoring this event with Harvard University Native American Program; Francois-Xavier Bagnoud Center for Health and Human Rights, Harvard School of Public Health; and Hutchins Center for African and African American Studies.
