Dear Colleagues at ENJAN,
I would like to invite members of ENJAN to two events at Vassar this week with Professor Nicole Gonzalez Van Cleve. Professor Van Cleve is author of Crook County: Racism and Injustice in America's Largest Criminal Court (Cook County, Illinois). She did many hours of court observations in Chicago. Considering ENJAN's court observation work, I believe members might find her lecture useful. Her lecture is Thursday, November 30th at 5:30 p.m., in Sanders Classroom 212 Spitzer Auditorium. I've attached the flyer. All are welcome--no RSVP necessary.
Second, you are also invited to a workshop with Professor Van Cleve in a smaller setting to discuss court watching and other strategies for community members, professors, and students, and anyone else hoping to reform and bring about changes in the justice system. The workshop is Friday, December 1st, 12:30-2p, in the Dome Room (212) in the Old Observatory. If anyone is interested in attending this event (lunch is provided), please RSVP to Patricia Mathis (firstname.lastname@example.org). ,
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me, Quincy Mills, Director of Africana Studies, Vassar College (email@example.com)
