At the University of Delaware, no less:

“We are a post-genocidal society. On this continent there were native people, indigenous people, Native Americans, and they were slaughtered by the millions … by white settlers,” Stevenson, a professor at the New York University School of Law, told the grads. “I don’t think that slavery ended in 1865, I think it just evolved. It turned into decades when you had lynchings and violence and terrorism, and people of color fled from the American south to communities all over this country.”

Stevenson is founder and executive director of the Equal Justice Initiative, a nonprofit that provides legal representation to defendants and prisoners caught up in the criminal justice system.
