All Deliberate Speed: Reflections on the First Half-Century of Brown v. Board of Education
by Charles Ogletree, Jr.
Publication Date: 2005
Description: 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.
Charles Ogletree, Jr., is the Harvard Law School Jesse Climenko Professor of Law and Associate Dean for Clinical Programs. He lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
