“A searing memoir and sharp social critique.”
Political theorist and director of Harvard’s Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics Danielle Allen’s work usually occupies a scholarly realm. This autumn, it takes a decidedly more personal turn with Cuz, a memoir that reflects on the American criminal justice system. With an investigative journalist’s tack, Allen explores how her cousin’s arrest for an attempted carjacking as a teenager began a complicated, 15-year year odyssey that contributed to his death at the age of 29. Allen visits Scripps for a reading and discussion of this poignant and devastating story.
