"Race, Politics, and the Criminalization of Mental Illness"

When: Wed., Jan. 28, 7 p.m. 2015

An estimated 50 percent of U.S. prisoners suffer from mental illness, which is why you should hear Vanderbilt University's Jonathan Metzl tonight when he discusses "Race, Politics and the Criminalization of Mental Illness." It's free and starts at 7 in Colorado College's Gaylord Hall (902 N. Cascade Ave., tinyurl.com/q8pkejm). Metzl is brought to you by a fresh History Department initiative, "Social Issues and Historical Contexts," established to explore ways in which "the past informs current efforts to remediate urgent social concerns." SIHC, supported by a three-year, $200,000 grant from an anonymous donor, has chosen inaugural speakers focused on criminality and correction. — Mary Jo Meade
