The purpose of this two-hour session is to consider the contribution critical race theory (CRT) has made to educational scholarship and to examine the progress made in terms of the field’s understanding of racial inequity in education since CRT was first introduced to the field. The purpose of this two-hour session is to consider the contribution critical race theory (CRT) has made to educational scholarship and to examine the progress made in terms of the field’s understanding of racial inequity in education since CRT was first introduced to the field. This symposium, in recognition of the 60th anniversary of the Brown v. Board decision, also serves as a follow-up to a symposium held in 2004, ten years after the initial AERA presentation by Ladson-Billings and Tate on CRT in 1994. The goals of the session proposed for the 20th anniversary, entitled “And we are still not saved (redux),” are similar to the earlier symposium. Specifically, the objectives of the session are to: (1) commemorate the 20th anniversary of CRT in education by outlining how CRT has been used in educational scholarship since its introduction to the discipline; (2) provide examples by both new and established scholars of current work on CRT in education; and (3) open a space for the exploration of next steps with regard to CRT in education. The session will be intergenerational with presentations by junior and senior CRT scholars and also offer an opportunity for attendees of the session to engage in dialogue with panelists and one of the authors of the 1994 AERA paper on the progress of CRT and education.
