*** MON NOV 14 (Doors Open at 6:30PM) EVENT starts at 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM * Revelle Forum Speaker is * Stanford Law School PROFESSOR RICHARD THOMPSON FORD * HIS TOPIC: Is the blowback from America's legislative approach to ending racism actually fostering more racism? In his bombshell expose, " The Race Card ", Richard Thompson Ford, Professor at Stanford Law School and widely acknowledged as one of the most insightful writers on race relations and legal issues in America today, showed the effect of civil rights laws on real and perceived racist acts. Now he offers a new, provocative critique of those important laws in Rights Gone Wrong: How Law Corrupts the Struggle for Equality, showing how they often fail us. Ford argues that equal rights laws are effective in addressing overt racism, but do little to address pressing social problems such as segregation and employment disparity. Ford's analysis is entertaining, humorous, unapologetic, and likely to draw praise and ire from both ends of the political spectrum. Doors open at 6:30 Note: Advance registration advised.
