Law clinic professor joins panelists at conference in DC

October 23, 2009

Davida Finger, assistant clinical professor in the Loyola University New Orleans College of Law, was an invited speaker and panelist at a forum in September hosted by the Congressional Black Caucus.

The forum, Stolen Legacy: How Racial Government Policies Denied African-American Wealth,” was held during the CBC’s 39th annual legislative conference in Washington, D.C. on Sept. 25.

The forum included a comprehensive discussion on the history of government racial policies and practices that limited African-American homeownership, constituting a denial of wealth; whether African-Americans have now successfully closed the wealth gap; and strategies for building wealth through homeownership.

Other panelists included Marc Morial, former New Orleans mayor and president and CEO of the National Urban League; Martin Luther King III; John C. Brittain, professor at the University of the District of Columbia David A. Clarke Law Center; Michael Colangelo, director of the NAACP’s Economic Justice Group; and Monique Morris, vice president of advocacy and research for the NAACP.
