Harvard Law Prof. Randall Kennedy discusses Browder v. Gayle, a 1955 federal lawsuit filed to challenge statutes requiring segregation on public transportation in Montgomery, Alabama. The case was a touchstone of the Civil Rights era, stemming from the Montgomery bus boycott, helping launch the advocacy of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and resulting in an opinion that helped topple "separate but equal" segregation laws. Kennedy's lecture was part of a civil rights lecture series supported by the Robert R. Wilson Fund at Duke University.
