Somewhere between the silent protests on the football field and the violence in Ferguson, Baltimore and Dallas, many people who care about the issues of racism and mass incarceration are voicing their opinions. Since Michelle Alexander wrote her book, The New Jim Crow, over 4 years ago, conversations about mass incarceration have taken place on a national level.
The third event in the “Still Speaking” Lecture Series will add to the dialogue with this program. The presenters are two New Jersey residents, State Senator Raymond Lesniak and Frank Bolden. Both are very knowledgeable about the issues of racism and mass incarceration.
