Abstract

Phil Tegeler was a Clason speaker at Western New England University School of Law. He lectured on the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the lack of changes to the country since that time, and the fact that segregation is still ongoing in both housing and education, and perhaps, that the situation is even worse than before. Mr. Tegeler has worked as a civil rights lawyer for over 25 years, litigating cases in federal and state courts involving fair housing, school desegregation, land use law, voting rights, first amendment law, gay rights, prison conditions, and other institutional reform litigation.
