The "Currents in Conversation" fora explore issues and topics dominating the headlines, airwaves, and social media platforms with implications for the study of race. This Fall, we pick up on a topic that has received precious little air-time on major news organizations: the Nationwide Prison Strike, which took place across 13 states from August 21st - September 9th, 2018.
Susan Burton is a widely recognized leader in the national criminal justice reform movement.
Ms. Burton will be discussing her book and work as an activist and advocate for incarcerated women.
She is author of the NAACP Image Award-winning book, Becoming Ms. Burton: From Prison to Recovery to Leading the Fight for Incarcerated Women, and founder of A New Way of Life Re-Entry Project.
