ACS Summer Reading List Book Talk: Allow Me to Retort
Please join the American Constitution Society for a conversation with Elie Mystal, Justice Correspondent & Columnist, The Nation, about his new book, Allow Me to Retort: A Black Guy's Guide to the Constitution. The author will be in conversation with Leah Litman, Assistant Professor of Law at The University of Michigan School of Law.
About Allow Me to Retort:
Allow Me to Retort is an easily digestible argument about what rights we have, what rights conservatives are trying to take away, and how to stop them. Mystal explains how to protect the rights of women and people of color instead of cowering to the absolutism of gun owners and bigots. He explains the legal way to stop everything from police brutality to political gerrymandering, just by changing a few judges and justices. He strips out all of the fancy jargon conservatives like to hide behind and lays bare the truth of their project to keep America forever tethered to its slaveholding past.
