A Bench and Bar Discussion: "Between the World and Me"

Presented by: HCBA Diversity & Inclusion Committee, Hennepin County Equal Justice Committee, Hennepin County Judicial Education Committee, Minnesota Association of Black Lawyers, and Volunteer Lawyers Network.

Michelle Alexander cautions in her review of the book ‘Between the World and Me’ by Ta-Nehisi Coates that it will offer “no answers but instead challenges us to wrestle with the questions on our own. Maybe this is the time for questioning, searching and struggling without really believing the struggle can be won.”  Please read the book on your own, prior to the meeting, and then come join the discussion as we wrestle with the questions presented about present day inequity and the challenges of the criminal justice system.  Our distinguished panelists will present their perspectives and lead a discussion about the themes in 'Between the World and Me.'


  • Camille Bryant, Assistant Hennepin County Public Defender
  • Jim Farrell, Assistant Hennepin County Attorney
  • Kimberly Hewitt, University of MN Director of Equal Opportunity
  • Judge Lyonel Norris, Fourth Judicial District Court

2.0 Elimination of Bias credits will be applied for by the Volunteer Lawyers Network
