FROM THE WAR ON POVERTY
TO THE WAR ON CRIME:
The Making of Mass Incarceration in America

An illustrated talk by author Elizabeth Hinton

A Harvard historian examines the origins of "the foremost civil rights issue of our time." During the past two years, deadly confrontations between police and young African-Americans, the demonstrations and movements these incidents inspired, and subsequent commentaries by writers such as Ta-Nehisi Coates, have forced the issues of aggressive police practices and mass incarceration to the forefront of our national consciousness.

In the United States today, one in every 31 adults is under some form of penal control, including one in eleven African American men. How did the “land of the free” become the home of the world’s largest prison system? Challenging the belief that America’s prison problem originated with the Reagan administration’s War on Drugs, Elizabeth Hinton traces the rise of mass incarceration to an ironic source: the social welfare programs of Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society at the height of the civil rights era.
