Race and the Constitution:
The Debates about Affirmative Action
Monday, May 1, at 7 p.m. is the last night in our Race and the Constitution series, where we will look at racism in the US as a series 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 program will be led by Stephan Haimowitz (JD, Rutgers University, 1975) who has worked on a broad range of civil rights matters, and invited guests include an Albany County Judge and Albany Law School student. All are welcome – there are no required readings, though articles, books and films will be suggested.
If you are enrolled in Medicare or soon to be enrolled, you may have some questions.
