This Article is written in celebration of the sixtieth anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education and the fiftieth anniversary of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The Article honors the 2014 conference created by the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Law and the Michigan State University College of Law-Pursuing the Dreams of Brown and the Civil Rights Act: A Living History of the Fight for Educational Equality. Given the structure of that conference, I intend for this to be digestible by legal researchers, educational researchers, practitioners, and those interested in grassroots advocacy fighting for equity, equality, and justice. My goal is to consider the United States Supreme Court's intent conveyed through the Brown decision in light of the Court's recent decisions as well as observed social implications.
