A couple of lawyers sitting in a room talking about police authority: just what you wanted to do on a Tuesday night, huh. Yet these are the lawyers who are working tirelessly for the poor and the disadvantaged every day of the week. Civil rights attorneys Lisa Bloom and Carl E. Douglas will talk about the deaths of Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown, as well as larger issues such as gun control, police misconduct and the breakdown of the system that happens when people of color meet the color of authority.

Tue., Feb. 3, 7:30 p.m., 2015
