NEW RACIAL JUSTICE INITIATIVE TO BE LED BY DR. YOHURU WILLIAMS In June, Dr. Julie Sullivan announced the formation of the Racial Justice Initiative at the University of St. Thomas. The initiative will be led by Dr. Yohuru Williams , former dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, who now holds a joint appointment in the Department of History and the School of Law. Williams is a noted scholar of the civil rights and black power movements, an education activist and frequent public commentator. He is also the author, editor or co-editor of numerous books. The St. Thomas Law community is already well acquainted with Williams, as he has been a periodic guest speaker and panelist at law school events. He also previously co-taught a Race, History and American Law seminar with Dean Robert Vischer. Williams and Vischer will co- teach this course again in the spring.
