The Rage of Innocence: How America Criminalizes Black Youth
What happens when teachers, law enforcement, and other adults in positions of authority are less protective and more punitive with certain kids? Kristin Henning has spent 25 years representing Black children in Washington, D.C.’s juvenile courts. During her tenure, she has seen, tried, or supervised the trial of almost every offense in the juvenile code. Join us at the City Club as we hear from Professor Kristin Henning on how the crisis in juvenile justice begins with America's relationship with Black children.
