Harvard Law School professor Kenneth Mack discusses the life of former Maryland Court of Appeals Chief Justice Robert Bell. Mr. Bell was one of the key defendants in the 1960 court case, Bell v. Maryland, where African American high school students were arrested for sitting in a segregated Maryland restaurant. In this talk, Professor Mack explores the three ways most scholars look at this case, and why each, in his opinion, are wrong. Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan gives the introduction and Judge Bell also attends the event in his honor. The Supreme Court Historical Society hosted this event.
