"Until Proven Innocent: An Examination of the Duke Lacrosse Case," a lecture by journalist and author Stuart Taylor Jr., will be held at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 18, in McCosh 50.
Taylor is the co-author, with K.C. Johnson, of "Until Proven Innocent: Political Correctness and the Shameful Injustices of the Duke Lacrosse Rape Case." His lecture will explore the political, racial and cultural relevance of the controversial case, in which three Duke lacrosse players were falsely accused of rape last year.
Taylor, a 1970 Princeton graduate, covers legal, policy and political issues as a senior writer and columnist for National Journal and a contributing editor for Newsweek.
The talk is part of the Jake McCandless '51 Speaker Series sponsored by the Princeton Varsity Club.
