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.
