Organizers are billing this event as “The Alternative Hugo Black Lecture”, in contestation of the University’s choice to invite Israeli Supreme Court Justice Aharon Barak, a figure accused of normalizing torture, occupation, and apartheid in Palestine, to give the annual Hugo Black Lecture in the Memorial Chapel.
