Accused of a crime he did not commit, and not willing to accept a guilty plea, Kalief Browder spent three years on Rikers Island, primarily in solitary confinement, while awaiting trial. Two years after his release he committed suicide –he was 22 years old.

Kalief Browder’s life has come to symbolize all that is wrong with policing and the soul-grinding policies of the American penal system. This workshop will use his life as a nexus to explore media representation, racial criminalization, and judicial inequality; and how these topics can serve to broaden social conversations and classroom instruction on a variety of topics: social and government studies, media studies, and criminal justice.
