Mr. Fancher is the staff attorney for the Racial Justice Project of the ACLU of Michigan. His work addresses racially disproportionate rates of incarceration, racial discrimination against public school students of color, racial profiling, attacks on the democratic rights of communities of color, and abusive police practices. Fancher served on the staff of the State Bar of Michigan from 1998 to 2000, and has been a leader in the National Conference of Black Lawyers.

Employment—whether forced or voluntary—has been historically used as a tool for the exploitation, manipulation, and control of African-descended people. He will discuss the legal and structural challenges to economic justice for America’s black community.

This is the fourth of a six-lecture series. The subject is The African American Experience.
