The Limits of Power?
A Conversation with Ramsey Clark- March 6
In more than fifty years of service in the public and private sectors, former attorney general Ramsey Clark has consistently challenged the abuse of power and taken up the cause of the oppressed. During his tenure at the Justice Department, which included a stint as U.S. Attorney General during the Johnson administration, Clark hastened an end to legalized segregation and played a historic role in the American civil rights movement. His many achievements include enforcing the court order protecting the march from Selma to Montgomery; leading the investigation of abuses by police and the National Guard following the Watts riots; and supervising the drafting and passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 and Civil Rights Act of 1968. He also opposed electronic surveillance and refused to authorize an FBI wiretap on Martin Luther King, Jr.
In 1976 Clark left the public sector to provide legal defense to the disenfranchised. His controversial clients over the years included antiwar activist Father Philip Berrigan; Native American political prisoner Leonard Peltier; and Sheikh Omar Abd El-Rahman, who was accused of masterminding the first World Trade Center bombing. An outspoken critic of U.S. foreign policy, he has called for an end to the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq as well as a ban on depleted uranium weapons. He fervently opposes the escalating militarization of the United States and is a staunch advocate for victims of constitutional violations and legal travesties in post-9/11 America.
Zaytuna College is greatly honored to present an evening with Ramsey Clark, who will share wisdom gleaned from a lifetime of service. Join us for what promises to be an informative and inspiring evening.
