The talk is free and open to the general public.
Alexander, author of The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness, gives the keynote speech for Northwestern University's Martin Luther King campus observance week, January 26th at 6:00 pm. For several years, Alexander served as the Director of the Racial Justice Project for the ACLU of Northern California, where she helped to lead a national campaign against racial profiling by law enforcement. Given the recent attention to police violence against African Americans, her talk is especially timely.
Hope to see some of you at either of these terrific events!
