Keynote Speaker
Karen E. Bravo, Dean, Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law

The United States District Court for the Southern District of Indiana is pleased to announce Dean Karen E. Bravo as the speaker at its 22nd annual Black History Month event. Dean Bravo’s remarks will focus on key moments throughout African American history, while putting recent events into a broader historical context. In 2020, America faced, among other challenges, social unrest and a popular (re)awakening about the legacy of enslavement. 2021 brings the opportunity to recognize the 160th anniversary of the beginning of the U.S. Civil War, the 100th anniversary of the Tulsa Race Massacre, and the 60th anniversary of the Freedom rides. Dean Bravo will reflect on these events, along with lessons she has learned, in an effort to build a better future.
