Summary
"Brown v. Board of Education was the landmark 1954 U.S. Supreme Court decision that declared racial segregation illegal in the United States. Commemorating Brown offers a critical retrospective on the role of psychological research in the fight against racism and discrimination and an up-to-date review of the psychology of racism and its implications for schools, the workplace, and public policy. The chapters provide a historical perspective on the Brown decision, including its promise as a mechanism for social justice, on why its promise remains unfulfilled, and on its ongoing relevance in a contemporary context of increasing resegregation. Equally important, chapter authors identify emerging directions for action in the continuing struggle against racism and oppression. These include multicultural and international analyses of racism that highlight the role of identity processes and collectively constructed realities. Finally, the editors describe an incisive sociocultural approach to the psychology of racism and oppression that integrates diverse programs of theory and research in social psychology."--Jacket
