Segregation is often thought to have ended with the 1954 Supreme Court ruling in Brown v. Board or at least with the passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act or at the very least with through the effects of bussing in the 1980s and early 1990s. We know though that due to white flight and withdrawing of public funding, racial segregation in primary and secondary education is worse than it was before 1954. In higher education, the rhetoric of segregation, desegregation, and integration is not neat either. In fact, despite affirmative action and other moves to diversify colleges and universities, segregation persists and not in the way that critics portray it. We will consider this using Hartman’s concept of the “afterlives of slavery” and Dr. Stewart’s research findings.
Dr. D-L Stewart is a professor in the School of Education, Co-Coordinator of Student Affairs in Higher Education, Co-Director of CSU Initiatives for the Race and Intersectional Studies for Educational Equity (RISE) Center, and affiliated faculty in the Center for Women’s Studies and Gender Research at Colorado State University. Their scholarship focuses on higher education’s history and philosophy, as well as institutional systems and structures that affect the postsecondary experiences, learning, growth, and becoming of minoritized students across a range of identities. They examine these topics through intersectional, critical, and poststructural frameworks that incorporate ableism, religious hegemony, and classism alongside racism, patriarchy, and queer/trans-antagonism.
