Abstract

The Supreme Court's decision in Brown v. Board of Education outlawing segregation in public schools has had a negligible impact on longstanding practices of unequal funding of publicly operated state universities. Today, by any measure, black colleges and universities in many states continue to receive significantly less funding than their predominantly white sister institutions.
