The constitution of the United States of American guarantees equal
protection of law. Nonetheless, equal protection of the law has been denied
because of race, and despite the advances of post WWII civil rights
movement, race continues to be a divisive issue in the American polity. This
seminar examines the scholarly debate surrounding three efforts, affirmative
action, affirmative apportionment, and reparations, which places race at the
center of its efforts to provide equal protection of the law.
