The Stacked Deck: Race and America’s Unjust Criminal Justice System
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
Biased policing. Discriminatory sentencing. Over-incarceration of black people. America’s long history of segregation and structural racism has led to today’s racialized criminal justice system. How do we address the roots of a system designed to perpetuate racial subjugation? Can we realize a just and equal future? Join Nick Turner, president and director of the Vera Institute of Justice, and Khalil Gibran Muhammad, author of The Condemnation of Blackness: Race, Crime and the Making of Modern Urban America, for this look at centuries of racial injustice, and how white Americans have reaped the benefits while black Americans have paid the price.
Venue: Brooklyn Historical Society
