As part of our ongoing Diversity Series, please join us on Monday, March 20 at 7:00 p.m, for Racism by Law – From Chattel Slavery to “Separate but Equal”. This program, the first of 5 in the coming weeks, will look at racism in the US as a sequence of legal problems. We will discuss the key rights established by court rulings as well as legislation, and examine those rights in operation. Issues will be addressed in their historical context, and the workings of the legal system will be explored. The focus will be practical realities rather than theory. The series will be led by Stephan Haimowitz (JD, Rutgers University, 1975) who has worked on a broad range of civil rights matters. All are welcome!
