In a groundbreaking ruling on June 29, 2023, the Supreme Court made a definitive statement by abolishing the use of race as a criterion in college admissions for two prominent American academic institutions.
Delving into the intricacies of this significant decision, the Director of Education at the International African American Museum, Dr. Knight, spearheaded a thought-provoking discussion alongside the esteemed Professor Cornell William Brooks. Notably recognized for his tenure as the former President & CEO of the NAACP, Professor Brooks currently serves as the distinguished Professor of the Practice of Public Leadership and Social Justice at Harvard Kennedy School.
Their dialogue revolved around the intricate complexities of race-conscious admissions and its far-reaching impact on the landscape of higher education and broader societal dynamics.
