Central Library African American Department
In his new book, former federal prosecutor Paul Butler powerfully demonstrates why current efforts to reform law enforcement will not create lasting change. A law professor at Georgetown University, Butler provides legal commentary for CNN, MSNBC, and NPR. He is the author of Let’s Get Free: A Hip-Hop Theory of Justice, winner of the Harry Chapin Media Award.
The Brown Lecture Series is supported by a generous grant from the Eddie C. and Sylvia Brown Foundation.
