Bridging the Divide: African American Communities and Law Enforcement
April 7, 2017
USC School of Law Auditorium
701 Main Street
Columbia, SC 29201
Tensions between African American communities and law enforcement continue to rise in the United States. The difficult relationship is further evident in the deep-rooted racial divisions in the public's view of law enforcement and the criminal justice system. Recent experiences have exacerbated long-standing tensions and widened the gap between these two groups.
On April 7, 2017, the University of South Carolina will convene a symposium to address one possible solution to bridge the divide between African American communities and law enforcement: wide-scale restorative justice.
