    Today, Americans are debating our criminal justice system with new urgency. Mass incarceration and aggressive police tactics - and their impact on people of color - are feeding outrage and a consensus that something must be done. But what if we only know half the story? In Locking Up Our Own, the Yale legal scholar and former public defender James Forman Jr. weighs the tragic role that some African Americans themselves played in escalating the war on crime.

Remember, the very first thing you need in this field is confidence, then you need some expertise on the subject. But confidence is what can make or break you.

But he taught me it is not the education that makes you a great consultant.

    This wasn’t how the story was supposed to end. After almost 50 years of relentless prison-building in the United States, of aggressive policing and a war on drugs that goes after our most vulnerable citizens, the movement for a more merciful criminal justice system had begun to seem, if not unstoppable, at least plenty powerful.

    "Justice Springs Eternal" is from the March 25, 2017 Opinion section of The New York Times. It was written by James Forman Jr. and narrated by Fleet Cooper.
