Project 60/50

MLK Day January 2014 to MLK Day January 2015

The year 2014 will mark the 60th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court decision in Brown v. Board of Education and the 50th anniversary of the passage and signing into law of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

These two watershed events continue to have a significant impact on American citizens of all races, ethnicities, genders, and cultures. No one can doubt that each in its own way has changed the way people think, live, work, are taught, and interact in American society.

Michigan State University will mark these anniversaries with Project 60/50—a one-year series of academic, public celebration, and remembrance events started in January 2014. The Law College will play a leading role in the campus-wide celebration. MSU Law faculty and staff are planning several events, including:
