Event description

Description

A former federal judge, Shira Scheindlin is particularly astute about civil rights and public policy. Among her notable decisions, she struck down New York’s stop-and-frisk law. Judge Scheindlin, who was appointed to the bench in 1994 by President Bill Clinton, presided over numerous criminal and civil cases during her 22-year tenure with the Southern District of New York. Join us for a night of conversation and music, featuring multi-instrumentalist Hubby Jenkins!

Person Place Thing is an interview show by Randy Cohen based on this idea: people are particularly engaging when they speak not directly about themselves but about something they care about. Guests talk about one person, one place, and one thing that are important to them. The result? Surprising stories from great talkers.

The mission of Humanities New York is to strengthen civil society and the bonds of community, using the humanities to foster engaged inquiry and dialogue around social and cultural concerns. Founded in 1975 as the National Endowment for the Humanities’ partner in New York State, Humanities New York is the sole statewide proponent of public access to the humanities.
