The Wayne Morse Center for Law and Politics is dedicated to education and public discussion of current issues in law and politics. We invite scholars and advocates to the University of Oregon to carry on the tradition of the late Senator Wayne Morse.
Join us on February 18 at 6:30 p.m. for a lecture featuring Kim Williams, Portland State University. She’ll be talking about the decision by federal officials allowing Americans to “mark one or more” racial categories in the 2000 census. She argues that this symbolic reform launched a multiracial movement with significant and unintended consequences.
