Ben Crump - Open Season: Legalized Genocide of Colored People

Upcoming Event
Thursday, October 24, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

President of the National Bar Association, Crump is one of the most distinguished civil rights attorneys working today. In this inspiring and unsettling account, he looks back over some of the many cases he’s handled, including those of Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown, and analyzes key legal tenets such as the 13th Amendment, the 1951 Genocide Petition to the United Nations, and the Stand Your Ground laws. As he lays out a history of unequal application of Constitutional rights, Crump argues that the American legal system—where race detrimentally influences sentencing, police unions protect officers who shoot unarmed civilians, and budget cuts lead to more crime—is rigged against people of color to the point of systemic genocide.
