This Saturday is the 60th anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education, the landmark U.S. Supreme Court ruling that struck down racial segregation in schools. That was a vital moment in the history of racial justice, but did not necessarily lead to schools offering a multiculturally equitable education for all students.
