Professor Quigley's Column in "Indianapolis Star" Highlights Former Hoosier
Professor Fran Quigley interviewed Reverend William Barber of Goldsboro, North Carolina, for his column published January 15, 2014, in the Indianapolis Star. Reverend Barber, an Indianapolis native, is also president of the North Carolina chapter of the NAACP.
The pastor has been leading a movement he calls “Moral Mondays,” where he and others gather at the North Carolina Capitol in Raleigh for singing and praying. Reverend Barber likens the work he is doing now, advocating for same-day voter registration and early voting, increased funding for public education, and a raise in the minimum wage, to the civil rights struggles of the 1960s.
Professor Quigley is a clinical professor of law and teaches in the Health and Human Rights Clinic. His forthcoming book, How Human Rights Can Build Haiti: The Lawyers, the Activists, and the Grassroots Movement, will be published by Vanderbilt University Press in 2014.
