Justice Deferred: Race and The Supreme Court Out of Stock
About the Seminar
Legendary South Carolina civil rights attorney Armand Derfner and Clemson University Professor Orville Vernon Burton teamed up to write a book on "Justice Deferred: Race and the Supreme Court." The book has just been released by the Belknap Press of the Harvard University Press. Join Armand and Professor Burton (Judge Matthew J. Perry Jr. Distinguished Professor of History) to hear about their study of race and the Court. In writing the book, they comprehensively charted the Court's race jurisprudence, addressing nearly 200 cases. In the book, they probe the parties involved, the justices' reasoning, and the impact of individual rulings. We will learn of heroes such as Thurgood Marshall; villains, including Roger Taney; and enigmas like Oliver Wendell Holmes and Hugo Black. USC Professor Todd Shaw will moderate a no-holds-barred discussion between Armand and Professor Burton. Next, we will have a distinguished panel of South Carolina Civil Rights Law practitioners speaking about current civil rights cases of interest in the areas of police misconduct, voting and election law, reproductive rights, and more. The book referenced is not included in the seminar registration fee.
