Duke Law's Center on Law, Race, and Politics and the Law in Slavery and Freedom Project of the University of Michigan will host a conference entitled "Reconstruction." This conference will critically reexamine the Reconstruction period - a span of history and legal change that set the stage for the Civil Rights Movement - and will evaluate the ways in which our contemporary and political and legal structure are shaped its failures and successes.
