Professors Henry Louis Gates, Jr., and Angela Davis will come together at Loyola Marymount University as part of the “Global Conversations Series" to discuss social justice issues, including the range of problems associated with incarceration and the generalized criminalization of communities that are most affected by poverty and racial discrimination.
