2013 Paul Robeson Lecture
This year’s lecture, “A Champion for African Freedom: Paul Robeson and the Struggle Against Apartheid,” will be delivered by Penelope Andrews, the President and Dean of Albany Law School and a Columbia Law School alumna (LL.M. 1984). The Robeson Lecture was established several years ago by the Center for the Study of Law and Culture at Columbia Law School to honor the memory of Paul Leroy Robeson, the great artist and activist who received his law degree from Columbia Law School in 1923. Previous lecturers have included Angela Y. Davis, Cornel West, Kwame Anthony Appiah, Manning Marable, Albie Sachs, Johnetta Cole and Beverly Guy-Sheftall.
The lecture will take place on February 28, 2013 at 5 p.m. in the Jerome Greene Hall of Columbia Law School, Room 104. Jerome Greene Hall is located at 435 West 116th Street, on the corner of Amsterdam Avenue. Room 104 is located on the ground floor.
