I had the opportunity to interview Alexis Hoag, Practitioner in Residence at Columbia Law School’s Holder Initiative, about the systemic racial issues at the heart of our Judicial system. Professor Hoag is an anti-death penalty advocate who recently published, Valuing Black Lives: A Case for Ending the Death Penalty and argued before the Ohio Supreme Court advocating for Glen Bates. Our conversation lasted about thirty minutes.
The 1619 Project is an initiative by The New York Times that re-examines the history, and lasting influence, of American slavery on our society.
Join us the first Tuesday of each month as we continue to discuss how the legacy of slavery remains the dominant factor of American political, cultural, and social spheres. The library program centers on the articles included in the New York Times Special Sunday Magazine dated August 20, 2019.
Article packets are available for download on this website or on the lobby display at the Lee Road Library.
