Keynote: Nic Stone in Conversation with Ibi Zoboi About Dear Justyce
1:00 pm - 1:45 pm
Sunday, November 1, 2020
This event has taken place.
With unflinching candor and heartbreaking vulnerability, 16-year-old Quan writes desperate missives to his friend Justyce about the abusive home life, stacked odds, and impossible choices that led him to be wrongfully imprisoned and charged with murder. In this highly anticipated sequel to her New York Times bestseller Dear Martin, Nic Stone highlights the intersecting forces that disproportionately land young Black men in jail and challenges the so-called justice system that puts them there.
