10.13.15 — This Sunday, October 18, the law school's Civil Rights and Restorative Justice Project (CRRJ) will be featured on the television public affairs show, Higher Ground. Hosted by Carmen Fields, Higher Ground focuses on spiritual and moral issues.  Professor Rose Zoltek-Jick, associate director of CRRJ, and student Tara Dunn '17 will discuss CRRJ's purpose and accomplishments. The show airs at 6 a.m. on October 18 on WHDH, channel 7, Boston.

CRRJ, founded by Professor Margaret Burnham, addresses harms resulting from the massive breakdown in law enforcement during the civil rights movement, from the 1950s to the early 1970s. This was a time of great political protest and turmoil as African-Americans and their allies militantly rejected Jim Crow, second-class citizenship, and economic exploitation.
