The Need for Cross-Race, Cross-Sector Dialogues – Podcast Episode 6 | Podcast Episode 6
Classnotes Podcast (January 24, 2007) More than 50 years ago, in Brown vs. Board of Education, the Supreme Court unanimously ruled that sending children to separate schools solely on the basis of race was unconstitutional. Seven years prior, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in California ruled in Mendez vs. Westminster that Mexican American children could not be denied access to public schools or a quality education because they were Mexican American. While these two decisions transformed the nature of U.S. public education, their objectives have not been fully met. IDRA has developed a process for community-based issues roundtables to catalyze local action to ensure that the promises of the Brown and Mendez cases are fulfilled. Dr. Rosana Rodríguez and Frances Guzmán join Dr. Bradley Scott, director of the IDRA South Central Collaborative for Equity, in a conversation describing how these sessions are creating lasting partnerships between African American and Latino communities, using education as common ground for collaboration.
