Summary
How should we understand legal colorblindness today? In Letters of the Law, Sora Han argues that colorblindness is not simply a racial ideology of American jurisprudence-it is also a fantasy structuring of legal interpretation itself. Letters of the Law traces the fantasy of colorblindness across iconic Supreme Court cases on citizenship, segregation, criminal procedure, internment, affirmative action, prisoner rights, and sexual freedom. Through these original, readings, Han reveals that unresolved legal legacies of racial slavery remain at the core of some of the most urgent social issues of our time. Ultimately, in Letters of the Law, diverse histories of civil rights reform converge as the ongoing practice of black freedom struggle. Book jacket
