A buffet dinner will be served at 6:00 p.m. King Rib of Indianapolis will be serving: Bar-B-Q Ribs and chicken, mac & cheese, baked beans, greens, cornbread, and cake.

During the dinner enjoy a Book Talk with featured speaker, Dr. Jeannine Bell, Associate Professor of Law, Indiana University School of Law. Professor Bell will be discussing her recently published book, Policing Hatred: Law Enforcement, Civil Rights, and Hate Crime. Policing Hatred explores the interaction of race and law enforcement in the controversial area of hate crime. Although the nation's attention has been focused on high profile hate crimes like the dragging death of James Byrd and the murder of Matthew Shepard, thousands of individuals each year are attacked because of their race, religion or sexual orientation. In hate crimes, stereotypes about criminal roles are often reversed: most of the accused tend to be white, while most of the victims are not.
