All Deliberate Speed: Reflections on the First Half Century of Brown V. Board of Education
In what John Hope Franklin calls "an essential work" on race and affirmative action, Charles Ogletree, Jr., tells his personal story of growing up a "Brown baby" against a vivid pageant of historical characters that includes, among others, Thurgood Marshall, Martin Luther King, Jr., Earl Warren, Anita Hill, Alan Bakke, and Clarence Thomas.

Board of Education offers a unique vantage point from which to view five decades of race relations in America.
