This weekend marks the 60th Anniversary of the historic Brown v. Board of Education ruling. The ground-breaking decision desegregated schools and forever changed the makeup of American classrooms. But many people– including Attorney General Eric Holder– say racism is still very much alive. Saturday, during his commencement speech at Morgan State University, he referenced recent comments made by Donald Sterling and rancher Cliven Bundy, saying:
"These outbursts of bigotry, while deplorable, are not the true markers of the struggle that still must be waged, or the work that still needs to be done – because the greatest threats do not announce themselves in screaming headlines. They are more subtle. They cut deeper."
"New Day Weekend" sat down with political science professor Jason Johnson and educational administration professor Sheneka Williams to discuss.
