Introducing Guest Blogger Frank Wu

wu-frank.jpgI’m delighted to introduce Professor Frank Wu (Howard Law School), who will be guest blogging with us for the next month.

Frank is the author of Yellow: Race in America Beyond Black and White, which was immediately reprinted in its hardcover edition, and co-author of Race, Rights and Reparation: Law and the Japanese American Internment. He is now writing a book about the Vincent Chin case. From 2004 to 2008, he served as the ninth Dean of Wayne State University Law School in his hometown of Detroit. In the 2008-2009 academic year, he will teach as a Visiting Professor at University of Maryland and George Washington University; in the summer, he will be a C.V. Starr Visiting Professor at the new Peking University School of Transnational Law. In the 2009-2010 academic year, he will rejoin the faculty of Howard University, where he was formerly a full Professor.

Frank serves as a Trustee of Gallaudet University, the only university in the world serving primarily deaf and hard of hearing, and he became Vice-Chair of the Board in 2006. He has been an adjunct professor at Columbia University, a visiting professor at University of Michigan, and a teaching fellow at Stanford University. He also has taught over several short periods at Deep Springs College, a highly-selective full-scholarship all-male school enrolling twenty-six on a student-run cattle ranch near Death Valley.

Prior to his academic career, Frank held a clerkship with the late U.S. District Judge Frank J. Battisti in Cleveland and practiced law with the firm of Morrison & Foerster in San Francisco. He received a B.A. from the Johns Hopkins University and a J.D. from the University of Michigan. He has completed the Management Development Program of the Harvard University Graduate School of Education.

Some of his publications include:

* YELLOW: RACE IN AMERICA BEYOND BLACK AND WHITE (Basic Books 2003)

* RACE, RIGHTS, AND REPARATION: LAW OF THE JAPANESE AMERICAN INTERNMENT (Aspen 2001)
