Harvard Law Prof. Randall Kennedy discusses how African Americans were named and named themselves before and after emancipation up to the Civil Rights era. As part of a civil rights lecture series supported by the Robert R. Wilson Fund at Duke University he looks into the 1963 case of Hamilton v. Alabama, in which an African-American woman, Mary Hamilton, was fined and jailed after refusing to answer a prosecutor who addressed her by her first name on the witness stand rather than calling her "Mrs. Hamilton".
