The contemporary American criminal justice system imprisons more people than any other country in the world. Notorious for its brutal police tactics and unashamed of the astonishing cruelty of its prisons, it regularly turns a blind eye to the institutionalized racism on display 24/7. How did a nation supposedly built on the rule of law get to this, and what can be done about it? Tony Platt’s groundbreaking book, Beyond These Walls (St. Martin’s), considers how the current broken system can be fixed and offers a bold plan for structural reforms that would guarantee justice for all.

Punishment Without Crime (Basic) offers an urgent new interpretation of inequality and injustice in America by examining the paradigmatic American offense: the lowly misdemeanor. Legal scholar Alexandra Natapoff reveals the inner workings of a petty offense system that produces over 13 million cases each year. People arrested for minor crimes are swept through courts where defendants often lack lawyers, judges process cases in mere minutes, and nearly everyone pleads guilty. As a result, vast numbers of Americans – most of them poor and people of color – are stigmatized as criminals, impoverished through fines and fees, and stripped of driver’s licenses, jobs, and housing.

Although census data show Oregon’s population becoming more racially diverse, the perception persists that we are one of the whitest states in the nation. Many Oregonians value racial diversity and the dimension and depth it adds to our lives, yet we remain largely isolated from one another and have yet to fulfill the vision of a racially integrated society.

What systems are in place to prevent the racial integration and equity many of us strive for? Knowing what we do, how do we act as individuals and communities to embrace the opportunity presented by a more diverse Oregon? This is the focus of “Power, Privilege, and Racial Diversity in Oregon” a free conversation with Willamette University professor Emily Drew. This program is hosted by People's Food Co-op and sponsored by Oregon Humanities.

The Community Room is located on the 2nd floor up a flight of stairs. It is also accessible by elevator lift--just let a cashier know you need to use it and they will help you!

Facilitor Bio: Drew is an associate professor of sociology at Willamette University, where she teaches courses on racism, race and ethnicity, urban sociology, mass media, and social change. She earned her doctorate from Loyola University Chicago and has published articles in Critical Studies in Media Communication, Television & New Media, and Tourism & Cultural Change.

Through the Conversation Project, Oregon Humanities offers free programs that engage community members in thoughtful, challenging conversations about ideas critical to our daily lives and our state's future.

Oregon Humanities connects Oregonians to ideas that change lives and transform communities. More information about Oregon Humanities’ programs and publications, which include the Conversation Project, Think & Drink, Humanity in Perspective, Bridging Oregon, Public Program Grants, and Oregon Humanities magazine, can be found at Oregon Humanities is an independent, nonprofit affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities and a partner of the Oregon Cultural Trust.
