In this introduction, Professors Margaret Chon and Keith Aoki situate both Professor Yamamoto's work and the articles that respond to it. They also follow Yamamoto's advice and "perform" critical race praxis as it might relate to legal education and legal scholarship. Thus, the latter part of this introduction takes the form of an epistolary exchange, culled loosely from various e-mail messages between Professors Aoki and Chon. It is intended (in both form and content) to illustrate how conceptual tools that Yamamoto provides can be used to address the intergroup racial justice issues that permeate law schools.
