“The Crimes of Capitalism”
Megan Ming Francis is an Associate Professor in the Department of Political Science at the University of Washington. Francis specializes in the study of American politics, race, and the development of constitutional law. Francis received her doctorate in Politics from Princeton University. She is the author of the award winning book, Civil Rights and the Making of the Modern American State (2014). This book tells the story of how the early campaign against state sanctioned racial violence of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) shaped the modern civil rights movement.
This is an informal discussion without a presentation–just an opportunity to interact. Come by, ask questions, and talk with a political scientist!
