Abigail & Stephan Thernstrom to Speak at USD
By Gail Heriot
Right Coast readers who live in San Diego will be interested to know that Abigail & Stephan Thernstrom will be delivering the Bowes Lecture at the Kroc Center at 5:30 p.m. tomorrow (Thursday), November 3rd. The title of their lecture will be "Let's Talk About Segregation."
For those who may be unfamiliar with the Thernstroms, Abigail is the Vice Chair of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights. Stephan is the Winthrop Professor of History at Harvard University. They are the authors of two of the most thoughtful books on race issues that I know of-- No Excuses: Closing the Racial Gap in Learning and America in Black and White: One Nation, Indivisible. I highly recommend both books.
This promises to be an important event, so get yourself there!
