Acclaimed economist Rucker C. Johnson will discuss his new book, "Children of the Dream: Why School Integration Works."

Explaining why integration worked, why it was abandoned, and how it can be revived to the benefit of all, "Children of the Dream" offers a radical new perspective on American social policy. Learn more and order a copy of the book here.

The Center for Engaged Research and Collaborative Learning; Office of Diversity and Inclusion and the MultiCultural Center; and the Task Force on Slavery, Segregation, and Racial Injustice at Rice University are partners for this program.


CERCL in partnership with the African American Library at the Gregory School offers residential fellowships for scholars whose research would benefit from the Houston Public Library special collections (particularly the Gregory School archives). This program is generously supported by the Kinder Institute for Urban Research.


Each Semester CERCL offers a fellowship program for scholars whose research presents and promotes innovative scholarship related to the study of African American religion.  In this way, CERCL aims to help advance the success of scholarship often considered marginal to the Academy.
