June 4, Sunday, 4 pm
Dr, Willie Parker, in discussion with Sunsara Taylor, on his new memoir, Life’s Work: A Moral Argument for Choice.

At a time when abortion rights are under attack like no time since the passage of Roe v. Wade, Dr. Willie Parker is performing abortions in several states, and speaking out in this memoir to debunk the reactionary myths around abortion with scientific precision and moral conviction.

“No one on earth expects a large, bald black man in sweats and a baseball cap to be a doctor at all, let alone one of the last abortion doctors in the south,” Parker writes in his memoir.

June 14, Wednesday, 7 pm
Event with James Forman Jr., author of Locking Up Our Own: Crime and Punishment in Black America.

It’s 1995—James Forman Jr. is a public defender in Washington, DC. He is trying to keep a 15-year-old out of a juvenile detention center with a grim reputation. He is failing...

Looking around the courtroom, Forman realizes that everyone associated with the case is African-American: the judge, the prosecutor, the bailiff. The arresting officer is Black, as is the city’s police chief, its mayor, and the majority of the city council that has written the stringent gun and drug laws his client has violated.

“What was going on?” Forman asks. “How did a majority-black jurisdiction end up incarcerating so many of its own?”

This is the question he addresses in his important new book, Locking Up Our Own.
