Ward Connerly

WARD CONNERLY first burst onto the American scene 1995 as the University of California Regent who had forced the largest public university in the country to become color-blind in its admissions policies. Some saw Connerly, a successful businessman, as bringing Martin Luther King Jr’s dream a step closer to reality, while Jesse Jackson and others accused him of “race treason.” Ignoring the withering attacks against him, Connerly led the 1996 campaign to pass California’s Proposition 209. In 1998, he spearheaded a similar successful anti-discrimination measure in Washington.
