Locking Up Our Own

Locking Up Our Own: Crime And Punishment In Black America

Tuesday, November 7, 2017 | 4:30 p.m. | Helene Fortunoff Theatre, Monroe Lecture Center

Locking Up Our Own: Crime and Punishment in Black America. By James Forman, Jr..

James Forman Jr., Former Public Defender, Yale Law Professor and Criminal Justice Reformer

Based on his critically acclaimed book Locking Up Our Own: Crime and Punishment in Black America, this talk builds on the work of James Forman Jr. as a public defender, a founder of a charter school for incarcerated teens, and a law professor to outline the criminal justice crisis with both data and human stories. He leaves the audience with hope for what can be done to make a difference, and how they themselves can contribute to change.
