THE 50TH anniversary of Brown vs. the Board of Education offers a chance to reflect on the civil rights movement’s past victories. But for Hugh B. Price, a keynote speaker at the 17th Annual Sadie T.M. Alexander Memorial Conference last February, the anniversary also represents the need to jettison strategies that are no longer effective and adopt new, more dynamic tactics.

“It is time to mount the third great transformational revolution in the annals of our people – the development revolution. The impetus behind this revolution is the realization and the reality that we black folk must increasingly take our progress into our own hands.” he said, speaking at the annual conference commemorating Penn’s first black female graduate and the first black woman to practice law in Pennsylvania.

“Given the obstacles, distractions and indifference abroad in the land, it will take a development revolution to catapult those of our people who are still mired in poverty and hopelessness into the American mainstream,” said Price, co-chair of the Nonprofit and Philanthropy Practice Group of DLA Piper Rudnick Gray & Cary LLP and former president of the National Urban League.
