Racial Justice Repository

Washburn University School of Law stands with its Black students, staff, and faculty against racial injustice and is resolute in the pursuit of equality in Kansas, our nation, and our world.

About the Racial Justice Repository

The Washburn Law Racial Justice Repository helps you find resources for learning more about the social construct of race and its intersection with law. Thank you to all alumni who sent resources to include in this repository. Special thanks to Angel Zimmerman who donated a significant amount of time to assembling many of the resources.

Dominique T. White Scholarship for Racial Justice

The Dominique T. White Scholarship for Racial Justice will support a student who seeks to do work promoting racial justice after graduation. Washburn Law joins many law schools across the country in naming a scholarship for a Black person whose life was ended by police action in the city or state where the law school is located.

The Topeka community suffered the loss of 30-year-old Dominique Tyrell White on September 28, 2017. Dominique was a Topeka native who attended Topeka Public Schools. He was a devoted father to four children and is survived by them, his parents Kelly White and Theresa Wynne, and other extended family.

Your donation will support this scholarship.
