Education and racism will be the topic of a panel discussion at the Margaret Warner Graduate School of Education and Human Development at the University of Rochester on Monday, Jan. 19, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the Welles-Brown Room of Rush Rhees Library on the University’s River Campus.

The panel will include individuals from educational, political, and community contexts who will address the issues of school segregation, the legacy of the Brown vs. Board of Education decision, and the influence of racism on public education today.
