Weekend Roundup

  • Now on YouTube: Helen Knowles’s recent Supreme Court Historical Society lecture on >Elsie Parrish and her fight for the minimum wage at the height of the depression," culminating in "the landmark Supreme Court Case, Parrish v. West Coast Hotel." 
  • Via SCOTUSblog, here is the final report of that  Presidential Commission on the Supreme Court ofthe United States. What word of FDR's Court-packing plan, you ask?  "Scholars disagree." 
  • “Brown University, Tougaloo College and the University of New Mexico School of Law partnered in June to host The Conversation, a three-week summer research dialogue among rising second-, third- and fourth-year undergraduates around issues of race, justice and the law as they have affected “involuntary Americans” (e.g., Indigenous peoples here before Columbus, Black people brought here enslaved, and Mexicans here before the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, and immigrants brought here as children).”  More.
  • For your year-end giving consideration: the ASLH!

Weekend Roundup is a weekly feature compiled by all the Legal History blogger.
