Symposium Series

As a collaborative project between Harvard University’s Charles Hamilton Houston Institute for Race & Justice and Clemson University’s Charles H. Houston Center for the Study of the Black Experience in Education, The Enduring Legacy of Charles Hamilton Houston is a biennial symposium that seeks to honor the work and influence of Charles Hamilton Houston—a civil rights lawyer, higher education administrator, and advocate for social justice. Additionally, the symposium is designed to raise awareness about critical issues pertaining to educational policy and educational research focused on school desegregation, affirmative action, closing the achievement gap, advancing educational opportunities, and improving educational attainment outcomes for all Americans while highlighting the effects and ramifications of legal pronouncements as well as state and federal laws.
