Thursday, February 28, 2019
5:30pm – 8:30pm

Law School
Starr Reading Room

All are welcome to attend the Black Law Studetns Association's Annual Night of Inspiration. The Night of Inspiration is an annual event that gives the legal community in Hartford and the surrounding area an opportunity to come together and discuss issues that affect the black community at large. This year's theme is "Redefining the Narrative: Creating a Counter-Narrative for Race and Criminality." Pervasive negative narratives in courtrooms and in the media will be discussed, as well as how student advocates can use their storytelling to weaponize a counter-narrative. An opening reception with refreshments and an open bar will be held from 5:30-6:30 pm. Professor Patricia Williams will then join the discussion to deliver the Keynote address. A performance by Cynthia Amoah will wrap up the night.
