Presentation at the Library
Happy hour/Dinner at Eureka! Restaurant
Racial Justice in the Age of Colorblindness
Presenter: Terry Jones
Terry will explain how our present day criminal justice system is unfairly incarcerating blacks and creating an environment of oppression much like the Jim Crow days in the Reconstruction period immediately after the Civil War. His discussion will explore the complex factors leading to entry into the penal system and the aftermath of incarceration.
Terry Jones is a retired physician who practiced vascular surgery for 30 years in Baton Rouge, Louisiana before retirement and subsequent move to Boulder, Colorado. His lifelong interest in race relations date back to 1957 when the KKK disrupted a church service he attended because a black minister was present.
