Authors to discuss race, inequality, and the law at NPC Book Event

February 28, 2018 | By Lori Russo |

Sherrilyn Ifill, president of the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, and Anthony Thompson, director of the Center on Race, Inequality and the Law at NYU, will appear together at a National Press Club Headliners Book Event at 6:30 p.m. on March 6. They co-authored the book “A Perilous Path: Talking Race, Inequality, and the Law” with former Attorney General Loretta Lynch and author and death penalty lawyer Bryan Stenson.

This event will feature a discussion with the authors, an audience question-and-answer session, and a book signing. Tickets are $5 for Club members and $10 for the general public, and can be purchased here.

With decades of experience between them in defending civil rights, Ifill and Thompson will have a candid and honest discussion about the state of race relations in Trump’s America and what the path forward must look like in this country if we are truly to achieve “justice and equality for all.”
