“Place not Race:  A New Vision of Opportunity in America”

Guest Speaker Sheryll Cashin, Professor of Law at Georgetown University

Sheryll Cashin writes about race relations, government and inequality in America. Her new book, Place Not Race: A New Vision of Opportunity in America (forthcoming Beacon Press, 2014), argues that affirmative action as currently practiced does little to help disadvantaged people and offers a new framework for true inclusion. Her book, The Failures of Integration (PublicAffairs, 2004) was an Editors' Choice in the New York Times Book Review.
