Albuquerque, NM
Fulfilling the Promise of School Segregation Cases
Dates Of Project: 

Albuquerque, NM - Critical Exposure worked with a small group of high school students to document the ways in which the promises of two court cases, Brown v. Board of Education and Mendez v. Westminster, have been fulfilled in their schools and how they remain unfulfilled. The students took photographs of their schools, wrote captions, and exhibited and spoke about their work during a Community Action Dialogue about education in Albuquerque. The students' images reveal both remarkable progress made in the 50 years since the Brown decision and the need for continuing efforts to ensure that all students have access to a high-quality education. The project was coordinated through a partnership with the Albuquerque School District and the Intercultural Development Research Association. Check back for an online gallery of the students' photographs.
