Randall Kennedy — Say It Loud!: On Race, Law, History, and Culture – with Rep. Jamie Raskin

2 min read

In a magnum opus that spans two decades, Harvard Law School professor Randall Ken­nedy, one of our preeminent legal scholars and public intellectuals, gives us twenty-nine provocative essays—some previously published, others written for this occasion—that explore key social justice issues of our time.

In each essay, Kennedy is mindful of com­plexity, ambivalence, and paradox, and he is always stirring and enlightening.Say It Loud! is a wide-ranging summa of Randall Kennedy’s thought on the realities and imaginaries of race in America.

Randall Kennedy is joined in conversation with Congressman Jamie Raskin, the U.S. Representative for Maryland’s 8th Congressional District.

He is currently serving his third term on the Judiciary, House Oversight and House Administration Committees and is serving his second term on the Rules Committee. Prior to his time in Congress, Raskin was a three-term State Senator in Maryland and a professor of constitutional law for more than a quarter-century at American University Washington College of Law.
