The Fear of Too Much Justice

October 10 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Join us for an evening with Stephen Bright, one of the loudest and most persuasive voices on the problems of racism and classism in our criminal justice system for over 40 years. He has tried capital cases before juries in Alabama, Georgia, and Mississippi, and argued cases before state and federal appellate courts, including four capital cases before the United States Supreme Court. The Supreme Court reversed three cases because of racial discrimination in jury selection and the fourth because of the denial of funds for a crucial expert witness.
