Event description

Description

Michelle Alexander, author of the acclaimed best-seller The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness, explores the myths surrounding our criminal justice system from a racial and ethical standpoint, and offers solutions for combating this epidemic. Delivering an emphatic wake-up call from the “colorblind slumber” that our country has fallen under, she leaves audiences with a new perspective on the challenges facing the civil rights community and a rousing call-to-action for a multi-racial, multi-ethnic human rights movement for justice in America.

The keynote is currently sold out but we will be livestreaming the keynote - you can watch from home via this link.
