Firm Partner Charnissa Holliday-Scott recently served as a guest panelist at “Before and After Brown,” a panel discussion about education options in the African-American community.  The panel discussion was prompted by the decision by the NAACP to call for a moratorium on charter public school expansion, which has sparked a critical discussion about the role of charter schools and school choice in the African-American community.   Other panelists included Cheryl Brown Henderson (daughter of Oliver Brown, the plaintiff in the landmark Brown v. Board of Education case), and Dr. Clem Ukaoma, a high school principal and educator with over 30 years’ experience.
