Frederick Douglass Forum Lecture Series

Frederick Douglass Forum Lecture Series

 

The central aim of the Frederick Douglass Forum on Law, Rights, and Justice at Linfield College is to promote reflection, discussion, and debate about the rule of law, individual rights, and competing conceptions of justice. The Douglass Forum seeks to achieve this aim through an interdisciplinary minor in Law, Rights, and Justice (housed in the Department of Political Science), student reading/discussion groups, and a lecture, debate, and conference series. This collection includes videos from the lecture, debate, and conference series.
