Social and racial inequality influence our criminal justice system. The House I Live In examines how communities of color and low-income Americans are disproportionately impacted by the War on Drugs, which has accounted for more than 45 million arrests over the past 40 years. Beyond simple misguided policy, the film investigates how political and economic corruption have fueled the War on Drugs, despite persistent evidence of its moral, economic, and practical failures.
Light refreshments will be served
This event complements the Anthropology Museum’s exhibit, “smallasaGIANT,” opening the first week of the spring quarter, which explores the long-term sentencing of youth in the California justice system.
