Lecture by emeritus professor of political science Howard Ball, author of recent memoir _Taking the Fight South: Chronicle of a Jew's Battle for Civil Rights in Mississippi_. He will talk about the struggle of African Americans to live as equal citizens for 400 years, connecting the works of W.E.B. Du Bois and James Baldwin to his experiences in the South in the '70s and '80s, and to events of the recent movement for social justice in the face of police killings.
