|Sadie T.M. Alexander Conference
The theme of the 18th annual Sadie T.M. Alexander Conference
was “A Sadie T.M. Alexander Conference
: Expanding the Legal
Discourse on Justice and Social Advancement.” The conference,
which was held in February, featured panels on “Exploring
Emerging Issues in Race and Class Inequality” and “Retroactive
Justice: The Quest, Costs, and Benefits of Remedying Past
Racial Injustice.” There were also a career fair and an ethics
workshop. The Black Law Students Association sponsored the
conference in an effort to raise funds to establish the Raymond
Pace and Sadie T.M. Alexander Professorship in Civil Rights.
In 1927, Sadie Alexander became the first African-American
woman to graduate from Penn Law School.
