HLSCRT2021 | Conference Opening

April 6, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Join Prof. Ken Mack for a discussion of the history of Critical Race Theory (CRT) in his career and at HLS, and his welcome to incoming Prof. Guy-Uriel Charles. Prof. Charles will discuss the future of CRT in his work and at HLS, giving context to this year’s conference theme “Freedom Dreaming for a Radical Reconstruction.”

Kenneth W. Mack is the inaugural Lawrence D. Biele Professor of Law and Affiliate Professor of History at Harvard University. He is also the co-faculty leader of the Harvard Law School Program on Law and History. His books on race and civil rights have won numerous awards.

Guy-Uriel Charles is a Professor of Law at Duke and the founding director of the Duke Law Center on Law, Race and Politics. He teaches and writes on issues related to constitutional law, election law, campaign finance, redistricting, politics, and race. He joins the Harvard Law faculty in the fall of 2021 as the Director of the Charles Hamilton Houston Institute, following years of calls from students for HLS to hire a CRT scholar.

The virtual conference will run from April 6 to April 18. Register for conference links and updates here:
