On Thursday 15 January, Washington and Lee University will present a panel discussion on “Race and Justice on America’s Street” at 4:30 pm in Leyburn Library’s Northen Auditorium.
“Issues of race and justice are continually in our nation’s headlines, and perhaps never more so than in the past few months. In this panel discussion, members of W&L’s law and undergraduate faculty and W&L students will discuss the recent tragedies in Ferguson and New York City, and explore the role that race plays in our nation’s justice system. We will take up such pressing issues as racial profiling, police violence, oppressed communities, protest and power, the rule of law, and many others. We aim for a diverse and open discussion of these issues that have so traumatized our communities.” (From the W&L Communications and Public Affairs office)
