2011 Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration Lecture

Guest speaker: Charles J. Ogletree, Harvard law professor and a prominent legal theorist.

Charles J. Ogletree is the Harvard Law School Jesse Climenko Professor of Law and the Founding and Executive Director of the Charles Hamilton Houston Institute for Race and Justice. A prominent legal theorist, Ogletree has earned an international reputation by taking a hard look at complex issues of law and by working to secure the rights guaranteed by the Constitution for everyone equally under the law. He has examined these issues not only in the classroom, on the Internet, and in the pages of prestigious law journals, but also in the everyday world of the public defender in the courtroom and in public television forums where these issues can be dramatically revealed. His most recent book is The Presumption of Guilt: The Arrest of Henry Louis Gates, Jr. and Race, Class and Crime in America.

The event is free of charge and open to the public. Please call 314-362-6854 or send an email to to RSVP.
