All Deliberate Speed: Reflections on the First Half-Century of Brown V. Board of Education

By Charles J Ogletree
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. A measured blend of personal memoir, exacting legal analysis, and brilliant insight, Ogletree's eyewitness account of the legacy of Brown v. Board of Education offers a unique vantage point from which to view five decades of race relations in America.


    REVIEW QUOTES
"Ogletree forcefully argues... that we must face the fact that courts are simply not equipped to deal with the most wretched and enduring legacy of slavery and segregation, which of course is poverty."
