Fighting for Racial Justice During the Trump Presidency: MLK Week Keynote Lecture by James Forman
Professor James Forman Jr. is a noted legal authority on the mass incarceration of black men in the U.S. criminal justice system. He will give our Chamberlin Social Justice lecture for MLK Week 2017, speaking on “Fighting for Racial Justice During the Trump Presidency.” Inspired by Dr. King and other civil rights activists, Forman will offer concrete strategies for improving schools and eliminating the mass incarceration of black men.
Professor Forman teaches at Yale Law School and writes in the areas of criminal procedure and criminal law policy, constitutional law, juvenile justice, and education law and policy. His particular interests are schools, prisons, and police, and those institutions’ race and class dimensions. Professor Forman’s book, titled Locking Up Our Own: Crime and Punishment in Black America, will be published in the spring of 2017.
