Attorney Dees to discuss litigation against hate groups

Morris Dees, Southern Poverty Law CenterMorris Dees, left, co-founder of the Southern Poverty Law Center, will discuss litigation and court proceedings regarding hate groups at 7 p.m. Nov. 3 in the University Union, Silver Eagle Suite.

Dees' presentation is part of a series of campus lectures and discussions about hate and hate groups.

Dees' topic is With Justice for All: Litigating Against Hate Groups. Dees is a co-founder of the law center, a civil rights organization that began in 1971 to address racism and social injustice. The group has won numerous landmark cases, including the largest ever settlement against a hate group. 

In 1995, a South Carolina jury awarded $37.8 million, later reduced to $21.8 million, against the Christian Knights of the Ku Klux Klan for their conspiracy to burn an African American church.

A screening of the film The Laramie Project closes the series. The film is about gay University of Wyoming student Matthew Shepard who was murdered in 1998, and the national response to the murder. The murder spawned the movie, a play and The Laramie Project Online Community resource center.

The screening will be at 6:30 p.m. Nov. 10 in the Chemistry Building, Room 109. A panel discussion follows. 

Previous discussions included presentations by Brian Cuban, an attorney and author, who discussed social media, the Internet and hate speech, and a presentation by Fred Zeidman, chairman of the United States Holocaust Commission.

Series sponsors are the Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation, the Jewish Federation of Fort Worth and Tarrant County, the Jewish Federation of Greater Dallas, the College of Arts and Sciences and the Department of History.
