Abstract

In 1987, I was honored to write the Foreword for a special issue on the National Black Law Journal. The special issue featured papers on race, racism and democracy written by students in a UCLA seminar that I had tailored to facilitate the production of publishable work by students. The state of legal education for African American students at the time was far from idyllic. Indeed, the Foreword was inspired by a host of events that I had witnessed both as a student and as a colleague that underscored the varied and subtle ways that race continued to marginalize students of color in legal education, particularly in the classroom.
