DEA CELEBRATES BLACK HISTORY MONTH
Professor Arlene Johnson, J.D., Columbus State University to be Guest Speaker

Feb 19--Each February we observe National Black History Month in recognition of the remarkable achievements of black Americans and the many contributions they have made to our nation’s heritage. The national theme for this year’s celebration is to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the Brown v. Board of Education U.S. Supreme Court landmark decision.

On February 20, 2004, the DEA Caribbean Division will hold its annual Black History Month Activity. Our featured guest speaker will be Arlene Johnson, J.D., Professor, Columbus State University. Professor Johnson will discuss the Brown v. Board of Education landmark Supreme Court decision aimed at ending segregation in public schools. On May 17, 1954, the Supreme Court unanimously declared that separate educational facilities are inherently unequal" and, as such, violate the 14th Amendment to the United States Constitution, which guarantees all citizens "equal protection of the laws."

DEA Special Agent in Charge Jerome Harris invites all members of the news media to cover this activity.

Location: Wyndham Old San Juan Hotel and Casino
Salon Fortaleza
Old San Juan, P.R.
Time: Friday, February 20, 2004
1:00 P.M.
