8:30 AM - 8:30 PM Illustration Student Exhibition - Suffolk University Gallery

9:00 AM - 7:00 PM "The Mirror of Race: Seeing Ourselves through History"

The Adams Gallery at Suffolk University presents The Mirror of Race: Seeing Ourselves through History, a photography exhibit that challenges viewers to think about what they see when they look into this mirror onto an earlier time. Interactive elements suggest reflection about how one sees race – in oneself and in others.

The exhibit includes daguerreotypes, tintypes, ambrotypes and other forms of early photography as well as prints from tintypes made by an Air National Guardsman deployed to Afghanistan. Ed Drew’s modern-day tintypes are believed to be the first battle zone photographs using this method since the American Civil War. 

10:00 AM - 6:00 PM Conference: David Lyons' "Confronting Injustice: Moral History and Political Theory"
A one day conference to honor the publication of David Lyons' Confronting Injustice: Moral History and Political Theory (Oxford, 2013).

Lyons is one of our most prominent legal and political theorists. He is Professor of Law and Philosophy at Boston University and Professor Emeritus of Law and Philosophy at Cornell. 

Graduate students in the Ethics and Public Policy program will be commenting on different chapters of the book, as described in the schedule below.

The book offers a provocative, critical look at key episodes in American political history. Here is a brief description of its focus:

The essays presented in this volume challenge both theorists and citizens to confront grave injustices committed in the United States. David Lyons encourages us to take a fresh look at the beginnings of America, including the colonists' early adoption of race-based slavery even though it was unlawful and why those who rebelled against English oppression were responsible for greater injustices against their Native American neighbors. Confronting injustice requires us to consider how delegates to the 1787 constitutional convention readily embraced increased protections for chattel slavery, why the federal government later abandoned Reconstruction, and why the nation allowed former slave owners to establish a new system of racial oppression called Jim Crow. It requires us to ask why America's official rejection of white supremacy is combined with an unwillingness to address continuing racial stratification. Confronting injustice calls upon political theorists to test their views in the crucible of social history. It challenges those who debate abstractly the idea of an obligation to obey the law to consider the implications of grievous injustices. It calls upon those who assume that their society is now 'reasonably just' to ask when that transformation occurred, despite the fact that children who are black or poor are denied equal opportunity.
