“Unfinished Legacy: Brown v. Board of Education at Fifty” features Ray Diamond, Tulane University professor, attorney and race relations expert. He is coauthor of the award-winning book, Brown v. Board of Education: Caste, Culture and Constitution. He will sign his book at a reception in the law school’s Morse Commons after the panel discussion.
Panelists include Robert Tsai, UO assistant professor of law; Naomi Zack, UO professor of philosophy; and Gregory Vincent, vice provost for institutional equity and diversity, and UO professor of law. Keith Aoki, UO professor of law, moderates.
