Legal scholar and author to visit Moss Point Library - July 15

The Ina Thompson Moss Point Library will host author Daria Roithmayr for a discussion and reading on Tuesday, July 15, starting at 6 p.m.

Refreshments will be provided by the Friends of the Library.

Daria's book "Reproducing Racism: How Everyday Choices Lock In White Advantage" provocatively argues that racial inequality lives on because white advantage functions as a powerful self-reinforcing monopoly, reproducing itself automatically from generation to generation even in the absence of intentional discrimination. Drawing on work in antitrust law and a range of other disciplines, Roithmayr brilliantly compares the dynamics of white advantage to the unfair tactics of giants like AT&T and Microsoft.

Daria Roithmayr is the George T. and Harriet E. Pfleger Professor of Law at the University of Southern California Gould School of Law. An internationally acclaimed legal scholar and activist, she is one of the country's leading voices on the legal analysis of structural racial inequality. Prior to joining USC, Professor Roithmayr advised Senator Edward Kennedy on the nominations of Clarence Thomas and David Souter, and taught law at the University of Illinois.

The library is located at 4119 Bellview Street near downtown.
