The IU School of Liberal Arts at IUPUI in conjunction with the Department of Sociology presents:
Mass Incarceration and the Destruction of Community: Beyond the Post-Racial Myth
As inequality widens and opportunities narrow for the bottom 90 percent of the American population, the disenfranchised face mass incarceration and social isolation. In a nation where nearly 25 percent of the world’s prisoners reside, can we still continue to be the land of the free? The American dream is increasingly at risk and is becoming unattainable for many hard-working people. What can be done to break this pattern and create opportunity, particularly for African Americans?
