Virtual Princeton Public Library

Elise Boddie, law professor at Rutgers University, discusses the challenges of integration in the North and why school segregation is a threat to public education and to our democracy.

Boddie, Henry Rutgers Professor and Judge Robert L. Carter Scholar at Rutgers University where she teaches constitutional law, civil rights, and state and local government law, discusses how decades of research point to significant educational and social benefits of integration, yet public schools across the country are highly segregated, especially in New Jersey. Boddie will be joined for a post-presentation discussion by Lynda G. Dodd, lecturer in public affairs at Princeton University's School of Public and International Affairs.

Presented in partnership with Not In Our Town Princeton and the Civil Rights Commission.
