As part of its 2019 MLK Symposium, the Institute featured attorney and social justice advocate Brittany Barnett, along with Sharanda Jones, freed from prison in 2015 after nearly 17 years behind bars, thanks to Barnett’s tireless efforts. Sharanda’s case was only the beginning of what has become Barnett’s life’s work, at this moment marked by another achievement: the publication of A Knock at Midnight, a powerful memoir that has been called “an essential book for our time.”

Barnett will read from and speak about her book and issues of justice and injustice that it raises, following which she will engage in conversation with audience members. Copies of A Knock at Midnight will be available for purchase online.
