Course Description

Recent events have highlighted problems with the criminal justice system and our larger social fabric, both locally and across the country. This 10-week online course will give you new insights and perspective about the situation. You’ll meet former prisoners, activists, and others who know the criminal justice system well. Expert speakers will discuss the human and financial costs of our current system, the history of our laws, and possible new approaches. We will also examine our civil rights history, which is tied closely to the criminal justice system, and hear from people and organizations involved with civil rights landmarks. Two or three class sessions will include presentations from Bryan Stevenson’s Equal Justice Initiative and the Legacy Museum, a museum in Alabama that explores the history of slavery and racism in America. This course builds on a spring course and summer online course. All are welcome. | Lecture + Q&A; Facilitated discussion; Viewing videos.
