Description

This presentation features Dr. Amy Levad, author of "Redeeming a Prison Society."

The United States incarcerates more people—by far—than any other nation in the world. As a result, we continue historical patterns of anti-blackness and racial oppression. We will explore the roots of mass incarceration in white supremacy and theologies of retributive punishment, drawing on these ideas to better understand our country today.
