“James Forman, Jr. tells the fascinating story of mass incarceration from the ground up. We see the heartbreaking stories of young people whose life prospects are diminished through tough-on-crime policies, the leaders in the Black community whose limited choices led to support for harsh punishments, and the ways in which the legacy of racism still frames outcomes in the 21st century. Locking Up Our Own helps us to understand how the prison population exploded and what we need to do to create a more compassionate approach to crime and justice.” Marc Mauer, Executive Director of the Sentencing Project and author of Race to Incarcerate.

James Forman, Jr. is professor of law at Yale Law School, a former clerk for Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, a former public defender in Washington, DC, where he cofounded the Maya Angelou Public Charter School. His book will be available for purchase, and he will autograph copies after his reading/discussion.
