Deadly Double Helix


Danielle Allen, Director of the Safra Center for Ethics at Harvard,  discusses her new memoir “CUZ”.

The book documents the events which conspired to cause the untimely death of her young cousin, Michael, on the streets of Los Angeles in 2009. A “deadly double helix” of narcotics and street gangs ultimately entrapped her cousin, as with countless others, leading to his incarceration and death.

Does our system of justice perpetuate the injustices it is meant to address?
