Summary Richard Delgado is one of the most evocative and forceful voices writing on the subject of race and law in America today. In When Equality Ends: Stories About Race and Resistance, Delgado, adopting his trademark storytelling approach, casts aside the dense, dry language so commonly associated with legal writing, and offers up a series of incisive and compelling conversations about race in America. The characters - a young professor of color, an aging veteran of many civil rights struggles, and a brilliant young conservative - tackle a handful of complex legal and policy questions in an engaging and accessible manner. Has U.S. society quietly ended its commitment to minorities and to racial equality? In these new chronicles, Delgado' searches for an answer.
