From the Equal Rights Amendment to Black Lives Matter: Reflecting on Intersectional Struggles for Equality

The symposium will culminate in a keynote speech by Elaine R. Jones ’70 at 1:30 p.m. Jones is the first Black woman to graduate from UVA Law School — 50 years ago — and the first woman to serve as director-counsel and president of the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund.
