Race, Protest, and Politics: Where Do We Go From Here?

Dr. Mary Frances Berry
Dr. Mary Frances Berry believes that each generation has the responsibility to make a dent in the wall of injustice. She speaks boldly for those who can’t speak for themselves and motivates all of us to take action. Her clarion call challenges everyone to stand up, stand tall and to never give up the fight.

For more than four decades, Berry has been one of the most visible and respected activists in the cause of civil rights, gender equality and social justice. Serving as Chairperson of the U.S. Civil Rights Commission, she led the charge for equal rights and liberties for all Americans over the course of four Presidential administrations. A trailblazer for women and African Americans alike, she also became the first woman of any race to head a major research university as Chancellor of the University of Colorado at Boulder. She is the Geraldine R. Segal Professor of American Social Thought and Professor of History at the University of Pennsylvania, where she teaches the history of American law and the history of law and social policy. Berry made history as one of the founders of the monumental Free South Africa Movement (FSAM).

This event is part of the U-M Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Symposium.
