Interview with Sheryll Cashin

For this month’s Keynote interview in Urbanite magazine, author and professor Sheryll Cashin talks with Marc about the diversity imperative and the civil rights movement of the 21st century.   

Sheryll Cashin is a product of the civil rights era; her mother was arrested during a sit-in while holding the 4-month-old Cashin in her arms, and her father founded an independent political party in 1968 when segregationist Alabama governor George Wallace was making a bid for the presidency. The Georgetown University law professor is also heralded for her memoir, The Agitator’s Daughter, and her book, The Failures of Integration: How Race and Class Are Undermining the American Dream.
