Ian F. Haney López, professor of law at the University of California, Berkeley, School of Law, will deliver the Center for the Study of Race & Race Relations Spring 2007 Lecture at noon April 3 in the Chesterfield Smith Ceremonial Classroom. The title of his lecture is “A Nation of Minorities: Race, Ethnicity, and Reactionary Colorblindness.” A prolific writer on race relations and law, Haney López’s most recent book, Racism on Trial: The Chicano Fight for Justice (Belknap/ Harvard, 2003), uses the legal history of the Mexican-American civil rights struggle in Los Angeles to explore the relationship between legal violence and self-conceptions of racial identity.
