Richard Thompson Ford (BA ’88), George E. Osborne Professor of Law, was awarded the Fletcher Fellowship, named for Alphonse Fletcher, Sr. as a commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court’s Brown v. Board of Education decision. As a member of the 2010-2011 class of fellows, Ford was recognized for addressing questions of social justice and equal opportunity, with his expertise in civil rights and antidiscrimination law. His fellowship project, “Rights Gone Wrong: Rescuing Social Justice from the Law,” examines the ways in which legal desegregation has not necessarily eliminated subtler and more elusive racial injustices in areas including public education and employment opportunities.
