BYU notes 50 years of Brown v. Board of Education with May 12 event

Featuring Utah Chief Justice Christine Durham and U.S. Attorney Paul Warner

"Fifty Years of Brown v. Board of Education" will be presented by the Utah State Bar and the Utah Commission on Racial and Ethnic Fairness Wednesday, May 12, at 7 p.m. in the J. Reuben Clark Law School on the Brigham Young University campus.

The event will feature a film presentation and a panel discussion celebrating the Supreme Court ruling that began desegregation in public schools.

The public is invited to attend this free event.

The film, "Road to Brown," chronicles the legal struggle for equal rights in education culminating in the 1954 Brown v. Board of Education decision abolishing state-sponsored segregation in schools.

A panel discussion beginning at 8:10 p.m. will include the Honorable Christine Durham, chief justice of the Utah Supreme Court; Paul Warner, U.S. attorney for the district of Utah, Betty Sawyer, former president of the Ogden branch of the NAACP; and Scott Ferrin, a BYU professor of law and education.

The moderator for the panel will be Keith Hamilton, co-chair for the Utah Commission on Racial and Ethnic Fairness.

Attorneys can receive two hours of CLE credit for attending.

The event will be hosted by BYU's J. Reuben Clark Law School, the Central Utah Chapter of the J. Reuben Clark Law Society and the David O. McKay School of education at BYU.
