critical race studies

You are invited to the upcoming Seventh Annual Critical Race Studies Symposium, Whiteness as Property: A Twenty-Year Appraisal on October 2nd to 4th at UCLA School of Law, celebrating one of the seminal texts of Critical Race Theory written by Professor Cheryl I. Harris.

In 1993, the Harvard Law Review published the groundbreaking article, and over the past two decades, we have seen the tremendous impact it has had inside and outside of legal academia, as well as within and beyond the borders of the United States.

Over two and a half days, prominent academics and advocates from around the globe will reflect on the political, legal, and intellectual context out of which Whiteness as Property emerged and explore how its theoretical arguments have shaped contemporary civil rights debates, pedagogy, legal practice, and social movement organizing.

Please register as soon as possible, as space is limited!*  The symposium will conclude with a fundraising reception – details regarding some very exciting guests forthcoming!

In addition to attending the event, you can bolster the effort through various sponsorship opportunities, which include the opportunity to be featured in the program booklet with ads or acknowledgements and range from being a benefactor of the symposium to sponsoring a student to attend.  Your support is crucial to furthering the important work of the Critical Race Studies program in training the next generation of racial justice advocates and scholars.
