Before and After Katrina: Black Education in New Orleans Play

Scholars, practitioners and community activists convened at Tulane University on Wednesday (March 10) for a public forum on the history of black education in New Orleans. Planners of the forum said that New Orleans offers an important context for this history since it was the site of the organized resistance that led the Supreme Court to establish the "separate but equal" clause in Plessy v. Ferguson, later overturned by the landmark case, Brown v. Board of Education.

The forum will assess reform efforts currently taking place in New Orleans and identify the policy implications of these reforms for urban school districts nationwide. Speakers will discuss issues such as school governance, parental involvement, politics, accountability, accessibility and activism.

The forum is presented by the Tulane Program in African and African Diaspora Studies with support from the Scott S. Cowen Institute for Public Education Initiatives and the Deep South Regional Humanities Center.
