Weiss University Professor of Law and Sociology and the Raymond Pace and Sadie Tanner Mossell Alexander Professor of Civil Rights, University of Pennsylvania School of Law This lecture will explore the relationship between interracial marriage and racial equality in Chicago during the emergence of the civil rights movement in the 1940s and 1950s. How did black-white couples experience and understand their marriages in relation to the intensifying challenge to the racial order? Although they lived outside the Jim Crow South, a significant aspect of their experience was segregated housing, which drastically limited where they could reside. This lecture is part of a book project that draws on an extraordinary archive of in-depth interviews of interracial couples conducted by Chicago anthropologist Robert E.T. Roberts over the course of five decades.Register to Attend. Doors will open at 3:30 PM.
