Connections: "When I was in prison" lecture series

Apr 12, 2017

"When I was in Prison…Restoring Dignity and Justice." That's the theme of the upcoming Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School lecture series. It includes the highly acclaimed film "13th," exploring the history of racial inequality, both in the country at large and in the U.S. prison system. Our guests will include the speakers who will address how to build social movements in a time of polarization, and on the state of LGBT laws (anti-gay laws, as they're often known) in other countries. Our guests:

  • Dr. Marvin McMickle, president of Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School
  • Maurice Tomlinson, attorney and LGBTI human rights advocate and a senior policy analyst with the Canadian HIV/AIDS Legal Network
  • Daniel Hunter, organizer with Training for Change and author of Building a Movement to End the New Jim Crow
