Due to unforeseen circumstances, we regret that the Freedom Lecture with Dr. Elizabeth Hinton has been postponed. We are exploring alternative dates for this program and will share an update as soon as we know more. We thank you for your interest in this program and your continued support.

Dr. Elizabeth Hinton is one of the nation's leading experts on criminalization and policing. As associate professor of history and African American Studies at Yale University, her research centers on poverty, racial inequality and urban violence in the 20th century United States and the intersection of the criminal justice system. In an evening of historic context and enlightenment, Dr. Hinton discusses her latest book, America on Fire: The Untold History of Police Violence and Black Rebellion Since the 1960s, illustrating how Black rebellion was born in response to poverty, exclusion and police violence.

Join us for an opening reception and enlightening discussion on inequities in policing and criminal justice in America and where we go from here.

Dr. Hinton’s lecture is presented in conjunction with the current special exhibition, Marking Time: Art in the Age of Mass Incarceration, which showcases artwork from formerly incarcerated artists and criminal justice advocates.
