The Rothko Chapel and the Bernard and Audre Rapoport Center for Human Rights and Justice present the eighth annual Frances Tarlton “Sissy” Farenthold Endowed Lecture in Peace, Social Justice and Human Rights featuring acclaimed scholar of race, gender and the law, Dorothy Roberts, George A. Weiss University Professor of Law and Sociology and the Raymond Pace and Sadie Tanner Mossell Alexander Professor of Civil Rights at the University of Pennsylvania, on the topic of family policing and reproductive justice. The lecture will be followed by conversation moderated by Eleanor Klibanoff, women’s health reporter at The Texas Tribune, and a book signing.
Named in honor of Sissy Farenthold (1926-2021), who dedicated her life to exposing and responding to injustices as a lawyer, legislator, and global leader in human rights, this lecture series inspires audiences to think and act creatively in response to the greatest human rights challenges of the 21st century.
