Coffee shop to relocate
above Literati bookstore

The Espresso Bar
to occupy second
floor space on E.
Daily Staff Reporter
Literature and coffee beans
will make a new pairing in
downtown Ann Arbor.
Literati Bookstore and The
Espresso Bar are taking over
the second floor of 124 E.
Washington St., the building
in which Literati is located.
The independent bookstore
will receive the keys to the sec-
ond floor by mid-October and
aims to have its grand reveal
sometime before Thanksgiv-
ing, Literati owner Hilary Gus-
tafson said.
Not long after opening the
bookstore in March 2013, Gus-
tafson discovered The Espresso

Bar, located at 327 Braun Ct. in
Kerrytown, and grew familiar
with its coffee as well as its
owner, Sandy Bledsoe.
"We visited his coffee shop
all of the time and noticed that
his business was really thriving
and we were just running out of
space in terms of storage," Gus-
tafson said. "So, we were think-
ing about ways in which we
could have some more space,
but be more creative about it."
Both businesses were facing
issues with limited space. After
six months of discussion, they
decided to purchase the second
floor of the Literati building.
Currently, Literati is com-
posed of a lower level and a
main level. Both are about 1,300
square feet, totaling about
2,600 square feet of space.
That figure will grow to 3,900
square feet with the addition
of the second floor. The lower
level contains the store's non-
fiction collection, and the main
level houses its fiction collec-

tion, essays and artwork.
Gustafson said she plans to
place the coffee shop on the
second floor and dedicate the
new space to store events and
featured content such as "I
Heard It On NPR" and Literati
Top 25. The cafe will seat about
30 customers. Gustafson said
she wants to create a cozy envi-
ronment with exposed brick
walls and large windows.
The Espresso Bar's move to
the second floor of Literati will
signify a relocation from its
Kerrytown location rather than
the opening of a new branch for
the coffee shop.
"It was just a natural growth
of two thriving businesses
needing more space." Gus-
tafson said.

Law Prof. talks affirmative
action's constitutional place

Lecture discusses
history of the law in
relation to the 'U'
Daily Staff Reporter
Discussions surrounding affir-
mative action continued Monday
as University Law Prof. Richard
Primus lectured on the history
and constitutionality of the issue
at the Ford School of Public Pol-
Primus is an expert on con-
stitutional law and has clerked
for Supreme Court Justice Ruth
Bader Ginsburg. He is also a
four-time recipient of the L. Hart
Wright Award for Excellence in
"To say that affirmative action
is a hard and complex issue is to
vastly underestimate affirmative
action," Primus said. "Constitu-
tionality and legality of a particu-
lar measure is variable over time,
depending on what people think
it means."
Primus explained the history
of affirmative action policy, start-

ing with the Freedmen's
Bureau, which provided services
for former slaves during Recon-
struction. Eventually, Primus
said, the federal government
began focusing on anti-discrimi-
nation laws that were enforced by
agencies like the National Labor
Relations Board. In the 1960s and
1970s, NLRB's "cease and desist"
letters blocking discriminatory
hiring practices were supple-
mented with modern affirmative
action policies.
Part of Prinus' curriculum in
his Equal Protection class deals
with the University's influence on
affirmative action policy across
the country. The state of Michi-
gan has been a flashpoint in the
history of affirmative action.
Former University President
Lee Bollinger and the University
were named as defendants in two
Supreme Court cases: Grutter v.
Bollinger and Gratz v. Bollinger,
which upheld the legality of race-
based affirmative action under
certain guidlines. In 2014, the
Supreme Court ruled in Schuette
v. Coalition to Defend Affirma-
tive Action to uphold Michigan's
constitutional ban on affirmative

According to Primus, former
Presidents Lyndon Johnson and
Richard Nixon created the affir-
mative action policies known
today. Primus also explained the
metamorphoses undergone by
the arguments in favor of affirma-
tive action.Primus said inthe'60s
and '70s affirmative action was
meant to rectify past or current
discrimination against Blacks,
while today most arguments in
favor of affirmative action focus
on the benefits ofhaving a diverse
workplace or school. Primus
said the argument for diversity
is easier to make because of how
contestable the subject of race is
in the United States.
Primus also discussed the
political realm of affirmative
action, as opposed to the poli-
tics. Affirmative action is a more
contentious issue for Americans
than legacy-based admissions
and preferences for athletes, even
though all three issues can be
viewed as degrading individual
meritocracy in college admis-
