Law Professor Kristin Henning's Analysis of the Foundations of Racist Policing in America Endured by Black Youth

Kristin Henning WWR Nov 2021

Drawing upon twenty-five years of experience representing Black youth in Washington, D.C.’s juvenile courts, Kristin Henning confronts America’s irrational, manufactured fears of these young people and makes a powerfully compelling case that the crisis in racist American policing begins with its relationship to Black children. Kris was the lead attorney for the Juvenile Unit at the Public Defender Service for Washington D.C., and she’s currently the Blume Professor of Law & Director of the Juvenile Justice Clinic and Initiative at the Georgetown University Law Center.
