All Deliberate Speed

Reflections on the First Half-Century of Brown v. Board of Education

Charles J. Ogletree, Jr. (Author)

 

"An effective blend of memoir, history and legal analysis."—Christopher Benson, Washington Post Book World

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.
