Social Justice Changemaker Lecture


Incarceration and its Aftermath:
How art can create pathways to reintegration and healing

Join us for a discussion between Reuben J. Miller and Nicole R. Fleetwood on the impact of mass incarceration on individuals and society, what life is like after incarceration, and the healing power of art for people impacted by the carceral system.

The Social Justice Changemaker Lecture was established by a generous gift from Dr. Neil C. Hawkins and Annmarie F. Hawkins and the Hawkins Family. This annual lecture focuses on important global social justice issues including race and nationality, immigration and refugees, income inequality, gender identity and sexual orientation, education, health, and mental and physical disabilities. The Lecture aims to bring prominent social justice experts and advocates from multiple disciplines, including social sciences, science, humanities, the arts, and the professions, to the University of Michigan Campus.
