Book Talk and signing
Cambridge Forum is pleased to present Danielle Allen, James Bryant Conant University Professor and Director of the Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics at Harvard, to discuss her new memoir “CUZ”. The book documents the events which conspired to cause the untimely death of her young cousin, Michael, on the streets of Los Angeles in 2009. The book looks at how a “deadly double helix” of narcotics and street gangs ultimately entrapped her cousin, as with countless others, leading to his incarceration and death. Allen asks if the current justice system only perpetuates the injustices it is meant to address?
