Description

Harry Kalven, Jr., of the University of Chicago Law School, presides over a staff meeting at the Center focused on Garner v. Louisiana, in which the Supreme Court reversed the conviction of sit-in demonstrators for disturbing the peace. The case, Professor Kalven asserts, illustrates both the limitations and resources of the law in dealing with the civil rights movement. July 9, 1963.
