    As a founding member and executive director at the Immigrant Defenders Law Center, Lindsay Tolczylowski has helped lead the push for awareness and protection of immigrant rights to a fair trial and due process. What challenges do immigration attorneys in today's political climate face? How does the "good vs. bad" immigrant narrative affect access to legal representation? Tolczylowski, formerly of the Esperanza Immigrant Rights Project and Asylum Access, will discuss the ways the U.S. legal system systematically and unfairly denies basic legal principles to immigrants facing deportation. This program is presented in partnership with the Scripps Humanities Institute.

    Winning praise from Ta-Nehisi Coates, Roxane Gay, and Trevor Noah, among others, Yaa Gyasi's Homegoing is a singular literary experience. Beginning in 18th-century Ghana with the story of two half-sisters whose lives take wildly different turns, Gyasi tackles the specter of slavery across eight generations: from the Gold Coast to the plantations of Mississippi, from the American Civil War to Jazz Age Harlem. The PEN/Hemingway Award- and National Book Critics Circle John Leonard Award-winner visits Scripps to discuss her work and contemporary literature with Hartley Burr Alexander Chair in the Humanities Myriam J. A. Chancy. This program is sponsored by the Hartley Burr Alexander Chair in the Humanities, the Scripps College Dean of Faculty's Office and the Harper Lectureship, and the Alexa Fullerton Hampton '42 Fund.
