If you don’t know who KC Johnson is, ask disbarred and disgraced former Durham DA Mike Nifong. Or, if you’re on Duke’s campus, ask any member of Duke’s justly scorned faculty Group of 88.

But after you ask, be ready to jump out of the way because no one’s done more than KC to expose the injustices of what we used to call “the Duke lacrosse rape case” or more to call attention to those who helped enable those injustices.

KC will be speaking at Duke tomorrow night, Tuesday, September 11 at 7 PM in Page Auditorium on Duke’s West Campus.

Page is located next to Duke Chapel (to the left as you face the Chapel). Here’a a link to for those of you who are visually oriented.

There's a large, well-lit parking deck ( Bryan Center deck) just behind and across from the Chapel off Science Drive.

From the Bryan Center deck to Page is an easy two or three minute walk.

There’s not much chance you can get lost but if you do, there'll be plenty of people to ask because you’ll be in a pedestrian area right by the Bryan Student Center.

Admission is free. The public is welcome.

As many of you know, KC’s just co-authored with Stuart Taylor Until Proven Innocent, a gripping, inside account of the attempted frame-up of three innocent Duke students and how it was exposed. Noted scholar Abigail Thernstrom, in her Wall Street Journal review, called the book “stunning.”

According to Ken Larrey who's handling public information for KC’s talk, the book will be on sale for $17 - $10 off the retail price - and there will
be a book signing by KC following his talk.

The event is co-sponsored by Duke Students for an Ethical Duke and the Program on Values and Ethics in the Marketplace (VEM).

Wish I'd have known of it earlier

At least maybe people can buy the book THERE, since the Barnes and Noble outlets seem to have blackballed it.

I think people should pay the extra $10 and DEMAND that B& N put them out on the front shelves. After it IS a new release.
