Beyond Brown: How the Supreme Court Shaped the Modern South
University of Sussex: March 22-24, 2007
In 1954, white southerners met the Supreme Court decision in Brown v. Board of Education with twin policies of massive resistance and minimum compliance. While much attention has been given to the fraught process of school desegregation in the southern states, scholars have focused far less on other areas of public life affected by Supreme Court decisions. This conference brings together speakers from both sides of the Atlantic who will discuss some of the more controversial rulings of the court and the ways in which southerners reacted to them.
Participants include Jane Dailey, J. Wayne Flynt, David Garrow, John Howard, Kevin Kruse, Matthew Lassiter, Robert Mason, Vivien Miller, J. Douglas Smith and Pamela Tyler.
