Oxford Law invites you to join us for this year's Equality and Diversity Lecture, which will be given by Kendall Thomas, Nash Professor of Law at Columbia University.

Drawing on interdisciplinary writing about the law and politics of race, Professor Thomas will offer a critical account of the recent attack on Critical Race Theory by the Trump administration and its allies, arguing that President Trump's assault is best seen as the latest historical chapter in the legal and political 'weaponization' of 'compulsory racial illiteracy'.
