Burnham Honors Cohort
The Burnham Honors Cohort
The Louis A. Berry Institute for Civil Rights & Justice at the Southern University Law Center presents the 2022 Burnham Honors Cohort. The Burnham Honors Cohort is a pilot project of students in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Arkansas, creating an account of historical racial violence and engaging communities in restorative measures encouraging accountability, truth, and memorialization.
The project namesake is named in honor of Margaret Burnham, Distinguished Professor of Law and African Studies at Northeastern University and founder/director of the highly regarded Civil Rights and Restorative Justice Project. The five-year project will start in September 2022.
