Assistant Professor Cheryl Nelson Butler, a member of the SMU Dedman Law faculty since fall 2011, teaches in the areas of torts and critical race theory. Her most recent scholarship, Blackness as Delinquency, is set for publication in the spring 2013 issue of the Washington University Law Review. Butler’s article, discussed favorably on the Legal History Blog in February 2012, breaks new ground on two fronts. First, it considers the first juvenile court’s treatment of Black youth within the context of the heightened racial oppression immediately following the Supreme Court’s landmark decision in Plessy v. Ferguson. Second, this article recovers the lost story of the Black club movement’s response to race issues within the juvenile court movement.
