Dr. Hill will focus on the intersections of race, masculinity, and incarceration. He will touch vastly on the importance of understanding the prison industrial complex through a racial justice and social justice framework. More details to follow. Please visit the Social Justice Series website for the most up-to-date details. 

Marc Lamont Hill will deliver a keynote lecture examining the role of mass incarceration in 21st Century society.

He also offers strategies for imagining and creating "a world without prisons."
