Law Professors Neil Siegel, Randall Kennedy and Amy Wax / Duke University, Harvard University, and Penn Law Schools
The United States has never been entirely sure what to do about race. Alone among the countries in the world, we have attempted to construct a nation of white and black, and many others, too. And it has made steady progress. But some believe that progress – political, social, and economic – has stalled. Each professor will address some of the large, complex, and multi-faceted problems of race in America, historically and today.
Neil S. Siegel is the David W. Ichel Professor of Law and Professor of Political Science at Duke Law School, where he also serves as co-director of the Program in Public Law and director of the DC Summer Institute on Law and Policy.
