Join DLS and the Black Law Student Association for a Cultural Re-Education Lecture Series.
The event will take place at Gordon Commons on Thursday, March 3rd, covering a diverse set of topics affecting minority communities, including “the N-word and pop culture,” “Hip-Hop and masculinity,” “Prison system” and more!
This event is free and open to the public.
Our speakers include Kaleem Caire, Dr. Randall Horton, and Sean Medlin.
Kaleem Caire is the former CEO the of Madison Urban League and is well-known for his work illuminating racial disparities within the Madison community.
Dr. Randall Horton is an Associate Professor of English at the University of New Haven and has recently published a memoir, Hook, which “is a gripping story of transformation. Without excuse or indulgence, author and educator Randall Horton explores his downward spiral from unassuming Howard University undergraduate to homeless drug addict, international cocaine smuggler, and incarcerated felon—before showing us the redemptive role that writing and literature played in helping him reclaim his life.”
Sean Medlin is a rapper, poet, actor, First Wave Hip-Hop Scholar, and contributing writer to The Black Voice of UW Madison, an online safe space where black students can express themselves. The Black Voice began as a student paper in 1971 and has recently returned with a sleek new website (https://blackvoicesuw.wordpress.com/).
This is sure to be a strong finale to Black History Month. Don't miss it!
