Racism and the Law

Racism and the Law - Confronting the Realities, a 4-part program led by Stephan Haimowitz, Esq.,

The US struggles every day with a broad range of race-related controversies, from mass incarceration to affirmative action, voting rights to Starbucks seats. America’s long legal history concerning race pervades today’s issues. That legacy also impacts what happens daily throughout government, business and neighborhoods.

This program will review how US law imposed multiple forms of racism on African-Americans for 300+ years then pivoted, seeking to prohibit racial discrimination in measured steps. We look at what the Constitution and courts say “equality” means, and examine how the legal process works.

The focus is on today’s key legal question in this area: What are the priorities - Colorblindness, Diversity, Reparations....?
