The Journey to Justice: A Conversation with Ben Crump

November 19, 2020 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm

Thu. November 19th | 4:30pm – 5:30pm PST | Virtual

At the heartbeat of that movement are the families seeking justice through Attorney Benjamin Crump. He represents the families of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, Tamir Rice, Nakia Jones, Danny Ray Thomas and Stephon Clark, as well as the residents of Flint, Michigan.

Traditional media was a powerful ally in the 1960s when America watched in outrage as police attack dogs and high-pressure water hoses were turned on children and adult protestors in Alabama. With a similar understanding of the interplay between civil rights and the social media landscape today, Crump fights in the courtroom and in the court of public opinion.

About Ben Crump: A renaissance man and media influencer, he is also a producer, documentarian, and author. His production company Brooklyn Media, curates scripted narrative content for film, TV and digital media, with a focus on stories of injustice, inequality, and civil rights. Crump sees this as one of the most deliberate ways to affect how juries see people of color.

Inspired by the legacy of Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall, Crump’s strategic selection of both cases and creative content is embedded in a singular mission -to “shock the conscience” of the American People.
