Date & Time:Thu Jun 30, 2022 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Location:Lyceum
201 S. Washington St.
Event Details:Lisa Crooms-Robinson, Professor of Law at the Howard University School of Law, lectures on the 1954 MacDowell Colony fellows, including Pauli Murray and James Baldwin as the Colony’s first two Black artists. Murray was at MacDowell to finish her family autobiography, "Proud Shoes." Baldwin was there to complete "Giovanni's Room." Her lecture uses the photo above, the two books, and additional writings from both to imagine a conversation between Murray and Baldwin about the May 1954 Brown v. Board of Education decision and larger issues of equality, identity, and citizenship. Professor Crooms-Robinson teaches Constitutional Law, Gender and the Law, International Human Rights Law, Supreme Court Jurisprudence, and a course, “Equality According to Pauli.” She is an internationally recognized scholar of race, gender, and human rights.
