Join author, law professor, civil rights activist, and Vanderbilt alumna Sheryll Cashin as she makes a fresh and original argument for bettering affirmative action. Based on her highly acclaimed book Place, not Race: A New Vision of Opportunity in America, Cashin reimagines affirmative action and champions place-based policies that support children who have thrived despite exposure to poverty.
This timely and important lecture celebrates several special events at Vanderbilt - the launch of the 2014-15 Chancellor's Lecture Series, the 30th anniversary of the Bishop Joseph Johnson Black Cultural Center and the Association of Vanderbilt Black Alumni. As an original founder of the Black Cultural Center, Cashin has played a vital role in positioning Vanderbilt as a place of opportunity for all. Mark your calendar to take part in this thought-provoking examination of affirmative action in 21st century America.
