The Rage of Innocence: How America Criminalized Black Youth (on Zoom)

Monday, May 23, 2022 22 Iyar 5782

7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

A Hill Havurah-Capit0l Hill Village co-sponsored Zoom presentation and discussion with Professor Kristin Henning, Blume Professor of Law, Director of the Juvenile Justice Clinic and Initiative, Georgetown University, and author of “The Rage of Innocence.”

Drawing on her 25 years representing Black youth at Washington DC’s Public Defender Service, Prof. Henning confronts America’s irrational, manufactured fears of Black youth and compellingly argues that the crisis in racist American policing begins with its relationship with Black children. She explains how many Black youth are viewed as a threat to White Americans and how, when denied healthy adolescent development, the outcome can result in fear, resentment, and resistance to police as well as a lifetime of trauma.
