Once You Learn How To Read, You Will Be Forever Free~Frederick Douglass

REVIEW Ellis Cose is one of America’s most reknowned journalist and author of several important books of national and international concern. A longtime columnist and contributing editor (1993 through 2010) for Newsweek magazine and former chairman of the editorial board and editorial page editor of the New York Daily News, began his journalism career as a weekly columnist for the Chicago Sun-Times—becoming, at the age of 19, the youngest editorial page columnist ever employed by a major Chicago daily. Cose, who is also an independent radio producer, is a popular campus lecturer and public speaker. Cose’s debut radio production effort, Against the Odds, aired in 2008 in more than 100 radio markets in the United States—including eight stations in the top 11 markets. He followed that up with a four-part series in 2009, which also aired in top radio markets across the United States.

REVIEW Serena K. Mayeri is an assistant professor of law at the University of Pennsylvania Law School. Prior to joining that faculty in 2006, she was a Samuel I. Golieb Fellow at the New York University School of Law and served as a law clerk to Judge Guido Calabresi on the US Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. Her scholarship has focused on the historical impact of progressive and conservative social movements for legal and constitutional change. By examining debates over constitutional equality, sex-segregated education, employment discrimination, and affirmative action, she explores how lawyers, judges, activists, politicians, and ordinary citizens reasoned about the relationship between racial justice and women’s rights during the 1960s and 1970s. Selections from this work have appeared in the California Law Review and the Yale Law Journal.

In addition to her research into antidiscrimination law and legal history, her research and teaching interests also include family law and policy. She is particularly interested in how changing family roles, composition, and structures affect and are reflected in legal doctrines. Mayeri earned her AB from Harvard University in 1997, her JD from Yale Law School in 2001, and her PhD in history from Yale University in 2001.
