Africana Criminal Justice Project

The Africana Criminal Justice Project (ACJP) was established to further develop and stimulate engagement (among academics, students, activists, and practitioners) with black intellectual production on the intersections connecting race, crime, and criminal justice systems. ACJP also supports initiatives seeking to address a response to the contemporary crisis of racialized criminal injustice, especially through the promotion of black civic capacity and leadership in communities impacted by mass criminalization and incarceration. These core objectives guide our research, education, and organizing initiatives.
