Hearing on H.R.40 in House Judiciary Committee

Professors Charles Ogletree and Eric Miller testified before the House Judiciary Committee on behalf of HR 40. A video of their historic testimony on behalf of HR 40 is now available on the House Judiciary Committee’s website:

Charles’ testimony begins at 40 minutes in and Eric’s begins at 3 hours, 56 minutes in. All of the testimony is really worth listening to—including those who spoke against HR 40, especially Stephen Thernstorm (of Harvard’s history department).
