Rawn James Jr. '01 discusses his important book, Root and Branch: Charles Hamilton Houston, Thurgood Marshall and the Struggle to End Segregation. The Supreme Court's decision in Brown v. Board of Education is widely considered a seminal point in the battle to end segregation, but it was in fact the culmination of a decades-long legal campaign. Root and Branch is the epic story of the two fiercely dedicated lawyers who led the fight from county courthouses to the marble halls of the Supreme Court, and, in the process, laid the legal foundations of the civil rights movement. Books will be available for sale in the third floor loggia of the Law School immediately after the lecture, followed by an author book signing. This event will be webcast.
