65th anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education
May 18, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
You are invited to a speech and roundtable discussion marking the 65th anniversary of the May 17, 1954 Brown v. Board of Education decision. The monumental Supreme Court decision struck down legalized segregation in America’s public schools–and challenged the entire system of Jim Crow that was ingrained in American law.
Casey Lartigue Jr., co-editor of the book “Educational freedom in Urban America : Brown v. Board after half a century,” will lead the discussion to be held Saturday May 18 from 6-8 pm at the TNKR office (near Gwangheungchang subway, line 6, exit 4). In 2004, Lartigue was the main organizer of a conference on the Brown decision that is still available on C-SPAN.
Now the co-founder of the Teach North Korean Refugees Global Education Center in Seoul, Lartigue will likely draw some lessons learned from his research about the Brown decision and connect it to his work with North Korean refugees.
Email CJL@alumni.harvard.edu to confirm your reservation, with the name on your bank account.
A few copies of the book Lartigue co-edited will be available for purchase, suggested payment of 20,000 won (or order your own cheaper used copy off Amazon or the Cato Institute Website).
15,000 won ($10) general admission.

20,000 won at the door for everyone.
