The second forum in a three-part series will explore causes and solutions to black-on-black crime.
The Charlotte Post Foundation will explore those issues as part of a community participation series July 26 at Little Rock AME Zion Community Center, 401 North McDowell St. The series is part of continuing programs from Black Lives Matter Charlotte, which explore issues that affect African Americans.
The forum starts at 6:30 p.m.
Charlotte attorney Henderson Hill, executive director of the 8th Amendment Project and one of North Carolina’s most prominent capital crime defense attorneys, will talk about the constitutional rights, and their impact on African Americans in their interaction in the criminal justice system.
The Eighth Amendment, which prohibits government from imposing cruel and unusual punishment, reads: “Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.”
