Becoming Ms. Burton: From Prison to Recovery to Leading the Fight for Incarcerated Women

We are excited to co-sponsor this talk with Susan Burton, founder of A New Way of Life, and author of Becoming Ms. Burton, winner of the prestigious NAACP Image Award.

"Susan's life story is one our nation desperately needs to hear and understand. This is a story about personal transformation and collective power. It is about one woman's journey to freedom, but it will help free us all."

—Michelle Alexander, author of The New Jim Crow

"Valuable . . . [like Michelle] Alexander's The New Jim Crow, Nell Bernstein's Burning Down the House, and Bryan Stevenson's Just Mercy. But rarely has such a powerful, personal perspective been made available to us. . . . Our understanding of the criminal justice system is immeasurably strengthened by Susan Burton's fierce, compassionate, and expressive voice."—Los Angeles Review of Books
