This piece suggests an optimistic reinterpretation of Professor Bell’s interest-convergence thesis. While the interest-convergence thesis explains the persistence of racial inequality, it also enables us to imagine intra-racial solidarity between socioeconomically disadvantaged groups. Such solidarity needs to be pursued vigorously in order to move beyond the grim forecasts of the interest-convergence story.
In addition to her appointment at Cardozo, Professor Suk will serve as a Visiting Professor of Law at Harvard Law School for the 2012-13 academic year. She is a widely published scholar of comparative equality law.
