A.D. White Professor-at-Large, John Rickford will present this talk that draws on 50+ years of research to address our theoretical understandings of the roles of race and class in sociolinguistic variation, and our applied efforts to curtail the discrimination and injustice experienced by African American and other vernacular speakers in schools, police interactions, courtrooms, job hunts and other aspects of social life.
