“Rigged” | Film and Panel Discussion

  • 4:00-6:30 pm
  • Wasserstein Hall, 2036 Milstein East B and C, Harvard Law School, 1585 Massachusetts Ave., Cambridge, MA

In partnership with the Center on the Legal Profession at Harvard Law School, join us for a screening of the documentary “Rigged: The Voter Suppression Playbook.”

Narrated by actor Jeffrey Wright, Rigged was shot during the 2016 election. The film outlines how a concerted, well-funded effort was made by certain right-wing groups working with states in 2016 to disenfranchise voters, particularly certain people of color and young people, in order to maintain power.

Following the film, the Center will host a panel discussion with Rigged executive producer Mac Heller, Henry Louis “Skip” Gates, Jr., Alphonse Fletcher, Jr. University Professor and Director, Hutchins Center for African & African American Research, and David B.Wilkins, Lester Kissel Professor of Law and Vice Dean for Global Initiatives. The panel conversation will include a discussion on race, history, and the important role of lawyers.

This event is free & open to the public.
