UDC David A. Clarke School of Law Professor John Brittain was quoted by Richard Wolfe in USA Today on January 20th, 2014 in an article on the 50th anniversary of the enactment of the Civil Rights Act. 

"Class and poverty have largely superseded race as the cause of inequality today, particularly in education," says John Brittain, a University of the District of Columbia law professor and former chief counsel for the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law. Calling it "de facto" rather than "de jure" segregation, Brittain says, "That is the challenge 40 to 50 years later."
