Winter Academic Term 2004 Course Guide


Fulfilling the Promise of Brown

Winter Academic Term 2004


Theme Semester Website: http://www.umich.edu/~urel/brown50


From January to May 2004, the University of Michigan commemorates the 50th anniversary of the 1954 Supreme Court decision in Brown v. Board of Education. The landmark case ended legal segregation in public education and sparked a civil rights movement that expanded far beyond issues of race and education.

As part of the commemoration, the Winter 2004 LSA Theme Semester, Fulfilling the Promise of Brown, aims to inspire research and dialogue about the legacy of Brown and how we may move forward after a half-century of struggles over school integration and equal opportunity. The theme semester is co-sponsored by the Departments of Psychology, History, and Sociology, the Program in American Culture, and the Center for Afroamerican and African Studies.

The theme semester includes special courses, public lectures and symposia, and cultural events. It is offered in collaboration with the U-M Commemoration and with the community book reading program, "Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti Reads."

For complete information and updates on public presentations, exhibitions, and cultural events, visit the official University website commemorating the 50th anniversary of Brown v. Board and the UM theme semester.
