Lani Guinier, Voting and Civil Rights Theorist and Legal Scholar, Dies at 71

She was the first Black woman to be given tenure at Harvard Law School, but faced attacks from conservatives later in her career.

Lani Guinier, the first Black woman to earn tenure at Harvard Law School has died at age 71. The New York Times reports that a cousin of the legal scholar, Sherrie Russell-Brown, confirmed Guinier’s death and provided no further details regarding a cause of death. School officials said she was surrounded by family at the time of her passing.

A champion for voting rights, and a civil rights theorist, Guinier came to national prominence in 1993, when then-President Bill Clinton, a Yale Law School classmate of Guinier’s, nominated her to be assistant attorney general for civil rights. Guinier was attacked by conservatives in the media and Senate Republicans over her writing on voting and civil rights, causing Clinton to eventually withdraw her nomination without a confirmation hearing.

She served as a special assistant in the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division during the Carter administration, and worked for the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, where she headed the voting rights project.

One of her legal arguments was that the concept of “one person, one vote” was insufficient in a system where the interests of minorities, racial, religious or otherwise, were inevitably trampled by those of the majority.

Donald Trump and the Republican Party are laying the groundwork to steal future elections.

It’s a helluva story.

But instead of reporting on it nonstop and sounding the alarm for democracy, our corporate media political reporters are treating it like it’s just more partisan politics as usual.

Radical Republican gerrymandering and attempts to limit voting may not be new – but they are getting worse, and they are hugely threatening to the central democratic principle of majority rule.

What is new is that the GOP under Trump has gone so much further, trying to overthrow the 2020 election, actively undermining confidence in the election system, and putting Trump loyalists in a position to overturn election results that don’t go their way in the future.
