"The People's Court"

This lecture examines a period-bound, demotic tradition in African American music, folklore, and vaudeville comedy based on the setting and process of the minor judiciary. It discovers in this tradition an alternative philosophy of law attuned to roles rather than rights, asymmetry rather than notional equality, and improvisation rather than reasoned restraint.
