Join us for the Cleveland Academy of Trial Attorneys in celebrating the installation of its new officers and enjoying a thoughtful conversation given by acclaimed writer and speaker, Professor Jelani Cobb.

Hailing from the University of Connecticut, Professor Cobb has provided engaging and meaningful contributions to the topic of race relations within his New Yorker columns and other publications including the Substance of Hope: Barack Obama and the Paradox of Progress.  His scholarly work has earned him Fellowships from the Fulbright and Ford Foundations as well as the Sidney Hillman Prize for Opinion and Analysis Journalism in 2015.   As an engaging speaker, he has been invited to speak on National Public Radio and various news media outlets.

His topic, The Half-Life of Freedom: Race and Justice in America Today, is both timely and important within our Cleveland Community.

RSVP today!
