(released 2/18/2016)

Joseph Jamal's feature Chapter & Verse is screening for free at the Miller Theatre at Columbia University at 6:30pm tonight.  The film will be followed by a panel discussion on race, justice, and the carceral continuum.

The panelists include the filmmaker Jamal Joseph (School of the Arts Professor), Kathy Boudin (Center for Justice), Soffiyah Elijah (Correctional Association of New York), Carl Hart (Department of Psychology Professor), and Samuel Roberts (African-American Studies Professor).
