The Summer of 2015


College of Law Professor Sean Mangan reflects on a series of dramatic events that occurred in Cincinnati during a few short weeks in the summer of 2015 and their implications for his own self-understanding as an individual, as a member of the local community, and as an American. Those events included weddings in Fountain Square that followed the Supreme Court’s vindication of the right to same-sex marriage as well as the tragic shooting deaths of Sonny Kim, Trepierre Hummons, and Samuel DuBose in acts involving police use of force.
