Khalil Gibran Muhammad, scholar, author and great-grandson of Nation of Islam founder Elijah Muhammad. He earned his PhD at Rutgers, but his national reputation at New York'sSchomburg Center for Research in Black Culture.
Now, after five years as president of the prestigious Schomburg, Muhammad - author of the prize-winning "Condemnation of Blackness: Race, Crime and the Making of Modern Urban America" - is returning to the academic life as a tenured professor at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government.
So, on this edition of "Due Process," we reprise my wide-ranging interview with Khalil. Our talk runs the gamut from the historic criminalization of black men to the modern bias in urban policing, from the legacy of his great-grandfather to the need for ongoing reform.
If you missed it the first time around, you'll want to join me for this one.
Thanks for watching!
