JAMES FORMAN JR.
In Conversation with Lara Bazelon

James Forman Jr.has devoted his life to fighting institutionalized racism. After clerking for Justice Sandra Day O'Connor Forman joined the Public Defender Service in Washington D.C. where for six years he represented both juveniles and adults charged with crimes. Frustrated with the lack of education and job training opportunities for his clients Forman founded the Maya Angelou Public Charter School an alternative school for previously arrested youth. Forman is a law professor at Yale University. In his Pulitzer Prize-winning book Locking Up Our Own: Crime and Punishment in Black America, Forman examines the war on crime that began in the 1970s why it was supported by many African American leaders and how it has contributed to the mass incarceration of people of color.
