When Justice Isn't Just





The US has the largest criminal justice system in the world, but it is rife with inequality. A 2018 report by the Sentencing Project shows racial disparity permeates every stage of the system. Black Americans are more likely than white Americans to be arrested; then more likely to be convicted. Black Americans are nearly 6 times as likely to be incarcerated than whites. Countless unarmed Black people have been targeted and killed by police officers. The documentary When Justice Isn’t Just examines the many ways our criminal justice system is failing so many Americans and how it could be mended. Taking us from the protests in the streets to courtrooms and prisons and to classrooms, it brings us the voices of people demanding justice. The producers of When Justice Isn’t Just, David Massey and Dawn Alexander, join us today to talk about the film, its impact, and what needs to change.
