HCBA Diversity & Inclusion Committee, Hennepin County Equal Justice Committee, Hennepin County Judicial Education Committee, Minnesota Association of Black Lawyers, and Volunteer Lawyers Network Present:

Between the World and Me (A Bench and Bar Discussion)

Michelle Alexander cautions in her review of the book Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates that it will offer “no answers but instead challenges us to wrestle with the questions on our own. Maybe this is the time for questioning, searching and struggling without really believing the struggle can be won.”  Come join the discussion as we wrestle with the questions presented about present day inequity and the challenges of the criminal justice system.  Our distinguished panelists will present their perspectives and lead a discussion about the themes in Between the World and Me.
