Banner contributor Talia Whyte attended and filmed Mary Frances Berry's Feb. 19, 2009, visit to Roxbury Community College. During a talk that lasted about an hour (divided below into seven clips ranging from four to 10 minutes), Berry — the former chairwoman of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights and now a professor of American social thought and history at the University of Pennsylvania — discussed her latest book, "And Justice for All: The United States Commission on Civil Rights and the Continuing Struggle for Freedom in America," as well as her career in Washington, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder's controversial "nation of cowards" speech, the New York Post's editorial cartoon that caused a national uproar last week, and much more.
