"The law can sometimes be taught in a box of absoluteness, where truth is derived solely from the black letter law. Critical Race Theory taught me to think not only about what the letter of the law says, but also about what the law itself means as it relates to the interplay of social structures and racial dynamics. I am now more probing and thoughtful, which will undoubtedly enhance my effectiveness as a civil rights lawyer."
—Taurean K. Brown, MPP/JD '11
