Legacies of the Civil Rights Era: Race, Equity, and Education - A Conversation with Dr. Eve Ewing and Dr. Terrence Roberts

Register today for our Facing History Now forum featuring Dr. Eve Ewing, a poet, a writer, a former Facing History teacher, and now a sociologist of education at the University of Chicago, and Dr. Terrence Roberts, one of the “Little Rock Nine” who desegregated Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas in 1957. Together they will discuss the legacies of the civil rights era on our city and our current education system.


Eve Ewing's new book Ghosts in the Schoolyard will be available for purchase at the event.
