Charles Ogletree | Black Lives Matter: Race & Justice Across America

Events | Headline and Cultural Forums

Charles Ogletree, professor of law at Harvard Law School and the founding and executive director of the Charles Hamilton Houston Institute for Race and Justice, takes a hard look at the recent crises around race, violence and justice across the U.S. in hopes of providing a deeper understanding of the current civil rights movement, and what needs to change to reflect and secure the rights guaranteed by the Constitution for everyone equally under the law.

Professor Charles Ogletree is the author or editor of several important books on race and justice, including Life without Parole: America's New Death Penalty?; The Presumption of Guilt: The Arrest of Henry Louis Gates, Jr. and Race, Class, and Crime in America; The Road to Abolition: The Future of Capital Punishment in the United States; When Law Fails: Making Sense of Miscarriages of Justice; and From Lynch Mobs to the Killing State: Race and the Death Penalty in America.

Cosponsored with the Wayne Morse Center for Law & Politics, University of Oregon and Oregon Criminal Defense Lawyers Association.
