Brown v. Board of Education was hailed as a landmark decision for civil rights. But decades later, many consider school integration a failure. UC Berkeley professor Rucker C. Johnson's new book Children of the Dream shows the exact opposite is true. The book looks at decades of studies to show that students of all races who attended integrated schools fared better than those who did not. In this interview with Goldman School of Public Policy Dean Henry E. Brady, Johnson explains how he and his team analyzed the impact of not just integration, but school funding policies, and the Head Start program. Recorded on 1/09/2019.

Women played a huge role in the 2018 midterms. A record number of women were elected to congress, some marking other historic firsts along the way. Women organized massive rallies, and made their voices heard at the polls. So, what can we expect in 2020 and beyond? Former Governor of Michigan Jennifer Granholm and UC Berkeley Public Policy professor Sarah Anzia sit down with PhD student Charlotte Hill to discuss how they see women shaping the future of politics in the United States.

Drew Altman, President and Chief Executive Office of the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation, talks with Claire Brindis, Director of UCSF's Philip R. Lee Institute for Health Policy Studies, about public health policy and the future of the ongoing healthcare debate. Recorded on 01/23/2019.

Undermining widely held beliefs about the black-Jewish alliance, Marc Dollinger, Professor of Jewish Studies at San Francisco State University, describes a new political consensus, based on identity politics, that drew blacks and Jews together and altered the course of American liberalism. Dollinger's most recent book takes a new and different look at Jewish involvement in the Civil Rights Movement, showing how American Jews leveraged the Black Power movement to increase Jewish ethnic and religious identity in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Recorded on 01/14/2019.

Inspired to fight poverty in the Bay Area, Goldman School of Public Policy Alumnus Daniel Lurie (MPP '05) founded Tipping Point in 2005.

In the last year alone, the organization has helped put 21,000 people on a path out of poverty through a combination of grantmaking, grantee support, corporate philanthropy, policy and research.

Two of Americas premier corporations, Gap Inc. and Hyatt Hotels, have set ambitious goals for hiring, mentoring and promoting opportunity youth. Meet the women who are leading these initiatives from the c-suite and learn why these employers see opportunity youth as a strategic investment.

Quality data is paramount to ensuring equal representation. If we don't know who is living in our communities, we can't create and maintain the systems needed to care for and support those people. In this panel discussion, experts on data collection, Chicano studies and urban planning discuss the challenges of getting good data, and how to turn data into action. This panel was part of a day long symposium celebrating the life and legacy of Leo Estrada, who spent 40-years at the Luskin School of Public Affairs at UCLA.
