The Second Annual Roger Wilkins Lecture will feature Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan in conversation. Justice Kagan was appointed to the US Supreme Court in 2010, and is the fourth woman to serve as a Supreme Court Justice. She was previously a professor at Harvard Law School and later became its first female Dean. Justice Kagan was also the first female Solicitor General of the United States (2009-2010).
The Roger Wilkins lecture series is named for the civil rights activist who was the first black assistant attorney general in U.S. history, serving under presidents Kennedy and Johnson. The late Wilkins, who won a Pulitzer Prize for his coverage of the Watergate scandal with Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein, also was a Robinson Professor of History and American Culture at Mason for almost 20 years.
