Book Signing and Lecture with Stanford Law School Professor Richard Thompson Ford.
What do Katrina victims waiting for federal disaster relief, millionaire rappers buying vintage champagne, Ivy League professors waiting for taxis, and ghetto hustlers trying to find steady work have in common? All have claimed to be victims of racism.
Stanford Law School Professor, Richard Thompson Ford, brings sophisticated legal analysis, lively and eye-popping anecdotes, and plain old common sense to this heated topic. "The Race Card" is a call for us to treat racism as a social problem that must be objectively understood and honestly evaluated.
