Citing Slavery

Slavery ended in the United States in 1865, but legal cases from that era continue to be cited as legal precedents today. Why and how is that even possible in the 21st century? How is slave-era law affecting your rights and privileges today? This presentation has answers. 

Join the African and African American Studies program and the History Department on Wednesday, February 7, 2024 from 6:00-8:00p.m. in Kochoff Auditorium in CASL with special guest Dr. Justin L. Simard, Assistant Professor at the College of Law from Michigan State University and Founder/Director of the Citing Slavery Project.
