70 Years Later: Revisiting the Legacy of Brown v. Board of Education in Jacksonville

May 29, Noon—1:30 p.m.

Registration Closed

May 17, 2024, marks the 70th anniversary of the landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision in Brown v. Board of Education where the Court held “in the field of public education the doctrine of ‘separate but equal’ has no place.” Join us on May 29, 2024, as we convene to commemorate this historic decision and discuss its legacy in Jacksonville, Florida. The Honorable Gerald B. Tjoflat, Senior United States Circuit Judge, will speak with us about the desegregation plan, opinions, and orders issued in Jacksonville post Brown. Our discussion will be moderated by the Honorable Brian J. Davis, Senior United States District Judge, and will include commentary by author, historian, and urban planner Ennis Davis. This event will take place in the jury assembly room of the Bryan Simpson United States Courthouse. We are pleased to invite all members of the legal community to attend this program which will include a catered lunch thanks to funding from the lawyers and judges of the Middle District of Florida through the Middle District of Florida’s Bench Bar Fund. Attendees will receive 1.5 hours of Florida CLE credit.
