Civil Rights Leaders: Supreme Court Michigan Ruling a Step Backward
Hilary Shelton, NAACP Washington Bureau Director/Sr. VP of Policy and Advocacy
"The NAACP is outraged with the Supreme Court’s decision. As we approach the 60th anniversary of Brown v. the Board of Education, we are reminded that there remain challenges to securing educational opportunities for all Americans regardless of race or ethnicity. The Supreme Court has impeded our country’s efforts to address the underrepresentation of racial and ethnic minorities in higher education and puts the access of future generations to high quality and well-rounded education in serious jeopardy."
