Professor Charles Mills of the CUNY Graduate Center will deliver a lecture entitled "Race and Justice"

Abstract: Can liberalism be the vehicle of a racial justice project? Given liberalism's long history of complicity with white supremacy, it is understandable if radicals and progressives are skeptical of any such claim. However, in this paper, I will argue that liberalism can indeed be retrieved for racial justice, but that it will take a systematic rethinking of liberalism's origins and framing assumptions.

The lecture will take place in the Amherst Room of the Campus Center; it is free and open to the public.  All are invited to a wine and cheese reception for Prof. Mills  immediately following the lecture.

This will be the Inaugural Gary Matthews Memorial Lecture, and is sponsored by the Department of Philosophy.
