The John L. Warfield Center for African and African American Studies presents a roundtable discussion titled "Post-Fisher, Post Race?"

What are the larger implications of the Fisher v. University of Texas case? How does the struggle for affirmative action in the United States compare with struggles for racial justice in other parts of the Americas?

Panelists include:

  • Choquette Hamilton, Associate Professor for Development, Black Studies
  • Richard Reddick, Assistant Professor, Department of Educational Administration
  • Juliet Hooker, Associate Professor, Department of Government
  • Edmund T. Gordon, Chair, Department of African & African Diaspora Studies
