Commemorating Black History Month:

February is Black History Month! Chicago-Kent Law Review is proud to commemorate Black History Month by highlighting Taja-Nia Henderson‘s article entitled “Dignity Contradictions: Reconstruction as Restoration,” 92 Chi.-Kent L. Rev. 1135 (2018).

Henderson’s article, published by Chicago-Kent Law Review in 2018, explores the post-emancipation exploitation and legal manipulations faced by former slaves, like Stephen Tilford in 1867 Tennessee, illustrating the challenges of Reconstruction and the lasting impact of slavery’s injustices.
