Charles W. Eliot Professor of Education Emeritus Charles V. Willie addressed the education workshop at a recent convention (July 14) of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) in Cincinnati.

His lecture was titled “Effective Grassroots Social Action in Public Education.” Several principles in citizen civil action shared with workshop members were based on Willie’s 2008 book, “Grassroots Social Action: Lessons in People Power Movements” (co-authored with Steven Ridini and David Willard). Willie congratulated the NAACP for restoring the good working relationship between lawyers and scholars that existed before the litigation of Brown v. Board of Education.
