Description

On November 21, 2014, the University of Kentucky College of Law hosted the James and Mary Lassiter Distinguished Visiting Professor Conference. Anthony Paul Farley, the 2014 Lassiter Distinguished Visiting Professor, led a group of prominent speakers through the day's events.

The Lassiter Distinguished Visiting Professor conference focused on the four freedoms and race. Black childhood is in danger. What is freedom of speech without the right to an education? What is freedom of worship amidst nihilistic erasures of black childhood? What is freedom from want when most of black childhood is lived below the poverty line? What is freedom from fear when black childhood is itself feared? Democracy requires these questions to be answered, and childhood’s relationship to time means that there is such a thing as too late. As academics and activists from all over the nation, we gather together to address these urgent questions of race, childhood, and democracy.

The lunch discussion was entitled:

There's No Such Thing as Black Childhood: How the Murders of Trayvon Martin, Mike Brown and Others Are Rooted in Jim Crow Racial Ideology

Dr. Stacey Patton, Chronicle of Higher Education
