Ragtime xylophone and jazz vibes will highlight a free mallet workshop concert, set at 8 p.m., Friday, July 31, in the Loudis Recital Hall of the Amy E. du Pont Music Building on UD's Newark campus.

Guinier will speak about challenging conventional thinking on the issues of race and class with a focus on the way those who have been excluded based on race or class are like the canary in the mines – their very vulnerability signals problems with the larger atmosphere affecting us all.

Guinier is the first African American woman to be appointed to a tenured professorship at Harvard Law School.

In 1993, she was nominated by President Bill Clinton to be the first black woman to head the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice. 

Today, Guinier is an author, a respected diversity speaker, and a leading advocate for political reform.

The lecture is held each year to recognize the civil rights efforts of Louis L. Redding, the first African American attorney admitted to the Delaware Bar in 1929. UD has named a new residence hall on East Campus in his honor.
