Race, Racism, and American Law: Re-visioning for the 21st Century

Derrick Bell’s seminal textbook, Race, Racism and American Law, first issued in 1972 was a groundbreaking intervention that challenged the dominant view of legal pedagogy as a race-neutral process and product. The co-authors of the seventh edition, Professors Cheryl Harris and Justin Hansford, will lead a panel discussion on the significance and legacy of Bell’s text, and will be joined by experts in the field of race, racism, and American Law who are a part of the project of revisioning the text for the 21st Century.
Organized by Critical Race Studies and Institute of American Cultures. AASC co-sponsored with Rosalinde and Arthur Gilbert Foundation, Office of the Special Assistant for Diversity, St. Louis University, St. Louis University School of Law.
