This year’s Battisti lecture will cover the lawyer pioneers who laid out the strategy for Brown v. Board, the obstacles they faced, and the ways racism has subsequently reared its head. The lecture, through exploring a range of prior cases, will look at the prior legal challenges and the ways those challenges continue to appear in the form of political obstacles.
