On SEPTEMBER 16, 2017 at 3pm THE FORUM @ ST ANN'S and DEAR AMERICA present, "From the Inside Out: America's Broken Criminal Justice System" a Bookend Event for the Brooklyn Book Festival.

The United States incarcerates more of its citizens than any other nation in the world. What are we doing to help reform a criminal justice system where race and economic status reign?

Four of today's most important voices speak out about our criminal justice system and the issues that plague our prisons and those incarcerated:

YUSEF SALAAM a member of the Central Park 5

MARLON PETERSON former prisoner and current advocate for gun reform

HEATHER ANN THOMPSON winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 2017

JAMES FORMAN JR former public defender, founder of the Maya Angelou School, and the son of James Forman a prominent civil rights leader and member of the Black Panther Party

The program will be introduced by MILES HODGES, a New York based spoken word poet, and former ambassador for the New York Public Library who organized workshops and spoken word performances at Rikers Island.
