What:Freedom School - Community Policing
When:Saturday, September 23, 2017 at 11:00 am
Where:Union Baptist Church, Columbia, United States, 29204
Description:Join in as we discuss "Community Perceptions of Policing: To Protect and Serve, or Contain and Control?" Please come ready to learn AND to teach. #EachOneTeachOne Light refreshments will be provided. U.S. History shows that law enforcement in of-color communities has rarely produced a harmonious relationship between the police and residents. In today’s media-saturate environment, exposure of abusive behavior, physical brutality and the casual use of deadly-force against unarmed civilians have contributed to what our former presidnt called a “crisis of policing.” This crisis is particularly sharp in the former Confederate states, where keeping black people in their “place” has often aligned local police with organized white resistance to racial justice. Recent reform efforts have promoted the concept of “community policing,” a shift away from the “Gladiator” to the “Guardian,” but will this reallybe enough to transform the police from an occupying institution imposed from without, to an one accoutable to the community it’s supposed to Serve and Protect?

What:The House I Live In: Criminal Justice and Mass Incarceration
When:Monday, October 09, 2017 at 6:30 pm
Where:Nickelodeon Theatre, Columbia, United States, 29201
Description:This film is a part of our JURISCINEMA: The Law on Screen series. Monday, October 9 at 6:30pm Director: Eugene Jarecki This investigation of the criminal justice system by award-winning filmmaker Eugene Jarecki, blends personal insights with systemic analysis, as the director sets out to understand the economically, socially and culturally devastating impact of the War on Drugs. Surveying policy from throughout the 20th and 21st centuries, The House I Live In examines how American racism and economic disparity – as manifest in the development of narcotics squads, strategies for policing, housing segregation, ghettoization, and the financial tolls of incarceration – have resulted in the disastrously disproportionate incarceration of Americans of color.

Bill Nettles is the former United States Attorney for the State of South Carolina (2010-2015), serving in the role for longer than any US Attorney for South Carolina since the 1960s.

What:To Kill A Mockingbird: The Law and Civil Rights
When:Monday, October 16, 2017 at 6:30 pm
Where:Nickelodeon Theatre, Columbia, United States, 29201
Description:This film is a part of our JURISCINEMA: The Law on Screen series. Monday, October 16 at 6:30pm Director: Robert Mulligan Based on Harper Lee’s Pulitzer-Prize winning novel, To Kill a Mockingbird is one of the most beloved legal films of all time. Set in 1930s rural Alabama, To Kill a Mockingbird is the story of Atticus Finch, an attorney defending Tom Robinson, an African American man falsely accused of assaulting a white woman before an all white jury. Released seven years after the murder of Emmett Till and two years before the Supreme Court case Swain v. Alabama emboldened attorneys’ use of peremptory challenges to create all-white juries (a decision later overturned in Batson v. Kentucky), To Kill a Mockingbird is a moving story of the fight for justice in the face of deeply entrenched institutional racism that remains as powerful and relevant today as it was at the time of its release. A conversation with Luther J. Battiste, III and M. Malissa Burnette follows the screening. Luther J. Battiste, III entered the political arena in 1983 and made history by becoming one of the first two African-Americans elected to Columbia City Council since Reconstruction. He served fifteen years as a member of the Columbia City Council including two terms as Mayor Pro Tempore. In 1998, the City of Columbia dedicated to Luther J. Battiste, III the Monument and Plaza in honor of his dedicated service as a public servant. Battiste has served as president of the Columbia Lawyers Association, the Richland County Bar, Association, the South Carolina Trial Lawyers Association, and The Southeastern Region of the American Board of Trial Advocates (SEABOTA). Malissa Burnette is a partner in the Burnette Shutt & McDaniel law firm in Columbia. Ms. Burnette has been a Certified Specialist in Employment and Labor Law since 1993. Ms. Burnette has been involved in several ground-breaking cases, including Mellette. v. Jones, which opened the doors of The Citadel to female students, and Tara Bailey v. SC High School League, which allowed girls in South Carolina public schools to play contact sports. In 2014, she represented Police Chief Crystal Moore of Latta, SC, and achieved her reinstatement. Chief Moore had been fired by the Mayor, who was caught on tape in a homophobic tirade. In 2014, Ms. Burnette was one of the lead attorneys in Condon and Bleckley v. SC Attorney General Alan Wilson, South Carolina’s marriage equality lawsuit that was upheld by the United States Supreme Court in June 2015.
