ASALH & HOWARD UNIVERSITY'S SOCIAL JUSTICE CONSORTIUM PRESENT OUR LATEST
SERIES, SOCIAL JUSTICE READING ROOM.

Many of you joined us for the first discussion in our latest series in partnership with the Howard University Social Justice Consortium, following the success of our Workshop Wednesdays program. Social Justice Reading Room is another collaborative (and virtual, via Zoom Webinar) effort offering complimentary insight from some of the more esteemed academics in their field. In our first Reading Room experience, esteemed historian Orville Vernon Burton and civil rights attorney Armand Derfner, the authors of Justice Deferred: Race and the Supreme Court, joined to discuss their latest book and the history of racially biased legislation in this country. Justice Deferred (Harvard University Press) explores the treatment of race in the three century history of the United States Supreme Court. Moderated by our very own Dr. Evelyn Brooks Higginbotham, past president of ASALH.
