Virtual Book Talk with Tomiko Brown-Nagin

Join us for a virtual book talk with Tomiko Brown-Nagin.

Brown-Nagin is an award-winning legal historian and an expert in constitutional law and education law and policy. She has published articles and book chapters on the Supreme Court's equal protection jurisprudence, civil rights law and history, the Affordable Care Act and education reform in a variety of publications, including the Yale Law Journal, the Harvard Law Review, the Columbia Law Review and the Journal of Law & Education.

Her latest book Civil Rights Queen captures the story of a remarkable American life, Constance Baker Motley, figure who remade law and inspired the imaginations of African Americans across the country. Burnished with an extraordinary wealth of research, award-winning, esteemed Civil Rights and legal historian and dean of the Harvard Radcliffe Institute, Brown-Nagin brings Motley to life in these pages. Brown-Nagin compels us to ponder some of our most timeless and urgent questions--how do the historically marginalized access the corridors of power? What is the price of the ticket? How does access to power shape individuals committed to social justice? In Civil Rights Queen, she dramatically fills out the picture of some of the most profound judicial and societal change made in twentieth-century America.
