The article focuses on art education after the decision in "Brown v. Board of Education" case. In a recent issue of "Rethinking Schools," focused on the Brown decision, the author was reminded of the role young people have played in the fight for educational justice, through an account of the work of a student from that era. School desegregation seemed like one potent solution to the larger problem of systemic and pervasive racial inequality. Opportunities should be created for students to learn about and address the critical issues that affect their lives.
