NFL Hall of Famer and former Minnesota Supreme Court Justice Alan Page will present a talk titled “TESTIFY: It’s Not About the Flag or the Anthem, It’s About Justice.” The address will respond to the controversy surrounding NFL protests and will attempt to shift the focus from whether player protests are appropriate back onto the underlying issue of racial justice. He will also discuss the ongoing injustice faced by people of color today, and the role that the judicial branch of government has played in perpetuating it. Q&A to follow. Presented in conjunction with the exhibit TESTIFY: Americana From Slavery to Today from the Diane and Alan Page Collection, on view in Cargill Hall Jan. 8-Feb. 6.
