In honoring life trustee Vera List with a lecture series in her name, The New School tries every year to select a speaker who embodies the ideas that she values-toughness of intellect, sensitivity of spirit, and concern for the issues at the core of the democratic experience.

This year's lecture is offered by Mary Frances Barry, a member of the US Commission on Civil Rights and author of a new book, The Pig Farmer's Daughter and Other Tales of American Justice, a survey of historical social and racial inequities in the judicial system of the United States.
