Capitol Hill Books added an event.
On Saturday, July 29th, author James Forman Jr. will appear at Capitol Hill Books to discuss “Locking Up Our Own: Crime and Punishment in Black America.” Mr. Forman is a law professor at Yale Law School who previously spent six years working as a public defender in Washington, D.C., an experience which he expertly mines in “Locking Up Our Own” to contextualize and illuminate the decisions which led to the mass incarceration of black men in our country. In particular, Forman adeptly shows that those who claim the African-American community has historically turned a blind eye to black-on-black crime could not be more wrong. Forman writes that the well-intentioned efforts of many black officials in cities like D.C., coupled with pervasive institutional racism and other factors, have led us to our current predicament. Join us this Saturday at 5:30 pm for a book signing and discussion with the author. We'll have beer from Bookstore Brews available starting at 4pm as well. http://www.npr.org/2017/07/17/537715793/how-black-leaders-unwittingly-contributed-to-the-era-of-mass-incarceration https://www.nytimes.com/2017/04/11/books/review-locking-up-our-own-james-forman-jr.html?_r=0

James Forman Jr., son of civil rights activists, says that African-American leaders seeking to combat drugs and crime often supported policies that disproportionately targeted the black community.
