Legal Studies Program Annual Distinguished Lecture: Coming to Understand Latino Anti-Black Bias

Join us as we welcome Tanya Katerí Hernández to discuss her book Racial Innocence: Unmasking Latino Anti-Black Bias and the Struggle for Equality. Praised as the "most important Afro-Latina voice on civil rights today," Hernández argues that unmasking Latino anti-Black bias is essential for fostering multiracial democracy in the United States.

Tanya Katerí Hernández is the Archibald R. Murray Professor of Law at Fordham University School of Law, and an Associate Director of Fordham's Center on Race, Law and Justice. She is the author of Racial Innocence: Unmasking Latino Anti-Black Bias and the Struggle for Equality

This event is open to all. Copies of Racial Innocence will be available for purchase. The UCSC Legal Studies Program and Professor Hernández are making 50 copies of the book available free to UCSC students who attend.
