Ford Hall Forum: Anita Hill receives the 2008 Louis P. and Evelyn Smith First Amendment Award [audio recording]

Date

20 March 2008

Description

As a lawyer, scholar, and civil rights activist. Professor Anita F. Hill, Brandeis University, has shed light on the legal and social forces shaping our nation and served as an inspiration to those seeking justice and truth in the face of great personal risk. Launched into the public sphere by her testimony in Justice Clarence Thomas’s Supreme Court Confirmation hearing, she used her potentially crippling experience to encourage those who have suffered from harassment and discrimination in the workplace to also “speak truth to power.” She received the Forum's First Amendment Award and shares her thoughts on her life and work. Moderated by Professor Charles J. Ogletree, Harvard University Law School.
