Upcoming Event
Thursday, July 20, 2017 at 7:00 pm

This timely and important collection of essays by writers including Bryan Stevenson, Sherrilyn Ifill, and Jeremy Travis, examines the role of racism in the country’s criminal justice system and reports on the recent killings of black men and boys by police. Edited by Angela J. Davis, a long-time civil rights activist, advocate for prison inmates, professor of law at American University’s Washington College of Law, and author of Arbitrary Justice, the book discusses issues such as racial profiling, implicit bias, the disproportionate imprisonment of black men, mass incarceration, and the failure of the Supreme Court and other official bodies to reform the system. 

Davis will be joined in a panel discussion with three contributors to the book: Kristin Henning, Renée McDonald Hutchins, and Roger A. Fairfax, Jr.
