The Making and Unmaking of Mass Incarceration

The United States is home to the largest prison system in world history, the product of a half-century of policing, surveillance, and sentencing measures that have fueled inequality. Elizabeth Hinton will discuss the history of the wars on crime and drugs to help us understand how we reached this point and what we can do to create meaningful change.

This event is free and open to the public but registration suggested.

Sponsored by The James Baldwin Lecture on Literary and Social Criticism and the Center for African, Black and Caribbean Studies.
