Locking Up Our Own: Crime and Punishment In Black America

Based on James Forman Jr.'s critically acclaimed book by the same name, this talk builds on Forman’s work 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.

Speaker: James Forman Jr., former public defender, professor, and criminal justice reformer, Yale Law School

Presented by the Hofstra Cultural Center

Co-sponsored by the Monroe Freedman Institute for the Study of Legal Ethics, Criminal Justice Clinic and the Black Law Students Association, Maurice A. Deane School of Law.

Date: Tuesday, November 7, 2017

Time: 4:30 p.m.

Location: Fortunoff Theater, Monroe Lecture Center
