Featuring Brittany K. Barnett, SMU Dedman School of Law 2011, award-winning attorney, author, and entrepreneur, this event focused on the buried alive crisis in the United States, leaving hundreds of thousands of nonviolent inmates serving life sentences. The talk featured her acclaimed memoir, "A Knock at Midnight: A Story of Hope, Justice, and Freedom" and her fierce call to action about the urgency of now. The Deason Criminal Justice Reform Center is excited to present "Doing the Work, Vol. 2," a series of presentations exploring racial and criminal justice. These presentations will foster a deeper discussion of key criminal justice issues of the day related to the personal, intellectual, and community work of change. This presentation in the "Doing the Work" Series is presented by the Deason Criminal Justice Reform Center, SMU Dedman School of Law, and the Mustang Bar Law Alumni Association in partnership with the Offices of Diversity & Inclusion and Public Service.
