“On the Permanence of Racial Injustice and the Possibility of Deracialization,” 69 Case Western Reserve Law Review 299 (2018) (co-author with Steven Ramirez)

In this article, Williams and Ramirez argue that as cultural diversity increases and more citizens are exposed to its benefits, the political power in support of legal innovations that embrace diversity will increase.
