Legal Aid Justice Center Presents: An Evening with Shaun King
Community Events | 11/27/2017 | 6:00PM
Journalist and activist Shaun King will discuss Civil Rights Today: The New Civil Rights Movement.
Shaun King has written extensively about the Black Lives Matter movement, covering discrimination, police brutality, the prison industrial complex, and social justice in the wake of violence in New York, Baltimore, Cleveland, Ferguson, Missouri, Charleston, South Carolina, and other cities. He is now the Writer-in-Residence at Harvard Law School’s Fair Justice Project as well as a columnist at The Intercept. In his position as Senior Justice Writer at the New York Daily News, King wrote over 630 columns. He is a regular political commentator for The Young Turks and on the Tom Joyner Morning Show, and was formerly Justice Writer for Daily Kos.
Working at the intersection of race and poverty, Legal Aid Justice Center’s Civil Rights and Racial Justice Program seeks to root out injustice in Virginia’s criminal legal system by challenging systemic practices and policies that unfairly target low-income communities and people of color.
This event is free and open to the public. There is a two ticket maximum per registrant.
