The book Race, Crime and the Law, by Harvard Law School professor and former Princeton trustee Randall Kennedy ’77, urges awareness and reconsideration of the undue influence of race upon the administration of criminal law. After graduating with a history degree, Kennedy attended Oxford on a Rhodes scholarship, then Yale Law School. He served as a law clerk for both Judge J. Skelly Wright of the United States Court of Appeals and Justice Thurgood Marshall of the United States Supreme Court. A well-known scholar and author, Kennedy also writes for a wide range of publications and has been a featured guest on many television and radio news programs.
