Linda Greene Keynotes at Civil Rights Teachers Institute

Linda Greene was the keynote speaker at the 2011 Summer Teacher Institute, a national workshop for teachers held at Little Rock's Central High School, a National Historic Site, where Governor Eisenhower sent in the 101st Airborne to integrate schools.

The Institute brings teachers together for a comprehensive study of the Civil Rights Movement, including examination of Supreme Court cases which have altered the interpretation of the United States Constitution: Plessy v. Ferguson and Brown v. Board of Education.

Professor Greene’s teaching and academic scholarship are concentrated in the areas of Constitutional Law, Civil Procedure, Legislation, Civil Rights and Sports Law. She began her career as a civil rights attorney on the staff of the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund in New York City. Professor Greene has also held administrative positions at the University including, from 1999 to 2004, serving as Associate Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs.
