HOW TO EMPOWER YOUTH THOUGH EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES:

                                   64 Years after Desegregation

Perhaps two of the most significant events of the post slavery - African American experience thus far were the efforts to desegregate public schools in America, in 1896 and 1954.  Both were intended to empower African American children to live the American dream of Freedom and Independence. Today, approximately 64 years after the last effort there is great challenge to get too many Urban youth and communities to embrace the power and benefit of Education as a Civil Right.       

Join TALK-STRAIGHT host, Rev., Dr. Rueben Dockery and his special guess, Professor Donovan F. Robertson, of Fisk University as they discuss means to ensure that all children have the maximum opportunities to learn and prosper in Urban America and abroad.

Specially Featuring:

The case study of Desegregation in Public Education: Plessey vs. Ferguson and Brown vs. Board of Education landmark cases
