American Justice

Nancy Gertner, Harvard Law, Retired Federal Judge and Lecia Brooks, Southern Poverty Law Center, Moderated by Elaine Tyler May (University of Minnesota History Department)

This panel discussion will bring Gertner and Brooks into a moderated conversation to discuss issues of race and justice in America. The two will discuss the roles of the justice system and advocacy, and why the history of the late 1960s is so relevant to issues of violence and race today. The audience will be invited to participate in the conversation with these two distinguished speakers to address the fraught topic of race and justice in America.

This event is part of the 1968/69-2018/19: Historic Upheavals, Enduring Aftershocks Series
