Board of Education decision of 1954." Guests: Deborah Willis, professor in the photography and imaging department at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts; Kathleen Cleaver, senior lecturer in African American Studies at Yale University and senior lecturer at Emory University's School of Law; and Robert P.
