At the L. Douglas Wilder Performing Arts Center at Norfolk State University.
The four panelists will be descendants of plaintiffs and judges in two 19th-century U.S. Supreme Court cases that denied basic rights to black people – the Dred Scott Decision and Plessy v. Ferguson. A University of Richmond law professor will moderate a discussion on how laws can lead to racism and on ways to facilitate understanding and racial healing.

This program promises to be an engaging one for students, faculty and administrators interested in history, government and law as well as diversity and inclusion.
