Africana Criminal Justice Project not only seeks to reframe and expand academic debates on issues of race and criminal justice, but to help mobilize initiatives to address the problem of racial inequality in criminal justice, and the particular crisis of mass incarceration. Critical research and education initiatives within Africana Studies can contribute to this effort, but especially important will be organizing civic leadership, especially among former prisoners themselves, and within communities burdened by the staggering collateral consequences of mass criminalization and imprisonment.
ACJP will contribute to this effort through several organizing initiatives, including conferences, the Freedom Summer Project, and an internet-based educational and organizing environment.
