Description

A Year of Reckoning: COVID19, BLM Protests, and Election 2020

Lecturer: Megan Ming Francis, MA, PhD,

University of Washington and Harvard Kennedy School Carr Center of Human Rights. 

2020 is a year like we have never witnessed. A pandemic that exposed structural health inequalities was followed by the largest civil rights uprisings in American history against police violence and systemic racism. The sustained demonstrations and radical imagination of protesters have challenged and remade the relationship between government and citizens. Megan Ming Francis will discuss how we got to this urgent moment, the power of organized protest, and the future of a fair and robust democracy.

Megan Ming Francis, MA, PhD's Profile

Megan Ming Francis, MA, PhD Related seminars and products:


Megan Ming Francis is an Associate Professor in the Department of Political Science at the University of Washington (UW). Francis specializes in the study of American politics, race, and the development of constitutional law. Francis received her M.A. and Ph.D. in Politics from Princeton University. She is particularly interested in the construction of rights and citizenship, black political activism, and the post-civil war South.

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. Departing with studies that place education and the landmark case Brown v. Board at the center of how to understand the NAACP and rights making in the United States—Francis marshals an extensive archival analysis to show that the battle against lynching and mob violence in the first quarter of the 20th century were pivotal to the development of civil rights and the growth of federal court power. Francis is currently at work on a second book project that examines the role of the criminal justice system in the rebuilding of southern political and economic power after the Civil War.
