Two prosecutors and a former judge talked about the balance of power between prosecutors and judges in sentencing criminals, and explored the potential need for sentencing guideline reforms.

“The Role of the Court” was part of the day-long event, “Race and Justice in America: An Atlantic Summit,” held in the Lincoln Theatre in Washington, D.C. It was inspired by the October 2015 cover story, “The Black Family in the Age of Mass Incarceration,” by Ta-Nehisi Coates. close
