Prof. Cedric Powell to speak about housing segregation, West Louisville at LBA eventUofL Law Professor Cedric Merlin Powell will speak about housing segregation and its impact on West Louisville at an event hosted by the Louisville Bar Association.

The event, held as part of the LBA's Black History Month programming, will examine "ill-advised policies of the 1960s and ‘70s that obliterated a once-vibrant center of black life in Louisville."

Powell, whose scholarship focuses on structural inequality, will sit on a panel along with Dan Hall. In 2017, Hall retired as the University of Louisville's vice president for community engagement. He was the first African-American appointed to a vice president position at UofL. Hall is being presented with the LBA's Justice William E. McAnulty Jr. Trailblazer Award.

Also at the event, Central High School students who won the Justice William E. McAnulty Jr. essay competition will be recognized.
