Created Equal: Striving toward Justice for All

A special forum, temporarily replacing our annual fall symposium, held at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library & Museum. The forum marked the 50th anniversary of the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the 40th anniversary of the legal proceedings that led to court-ordered busing to desegregate Boston Public Schools. Created Equal: Striving toward Justice for All was a moderated discussion between former Congressman Barney Frank, former Chief Justice of the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court Margaret Marshall, Rutgers Law Professor David Dante Troutt, and editor and publisher of The Nation magazine Katrina vanden Heuvel. The panel was deftly moderated by Todd Purdum, national editor of Vanity Fair.
