Mary Frances Berry talked about her book And Justice for All: The United States Commission on Civil Rights and the Continuing Struggle for Freedom in America (Knopf January 20, 2009). She talked about the history of the commission and how it has changed over the years. She calls for revising the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights in the context of international human rights standards and beginning anew to address issues such as torture, hate crimes and racial profiling. She responded to telephone calls and electronic correspondence.

Ms. Berry is the former chairperson and longest-serving member of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights and a past president of the Organization of American Historians. She is currently the Geraldine R. Segal Professor of American Social Thought and Professor of History at the University of Pennsylvania. close
