UW Speaker to Examine Race and Community Relations


September 17, 2013 — Youths’ relationships with criminal justice practices will be the focus of the University of Wyoming’s William D. Griffith Speaker Series lecture Thursday, Sept. 19, at 1:20 p.m. in the UW College of Education auditorium.

Criminal justice researcher Rod K. Brunson will discuss “Legitimacy, Race and Police Community Relations.” He will examine youths’ neighborhood experiences in the context of the interactions of race, class and gender and their relationships to criminal justice practices.

Brunson has published numerous articles in professional journals on the subjects of communities and violent crime, police community relations and qualitative research methods.

The Griffith Speaker Series is supported by the William D. Griffith Endowment, founded in 1992 by Wyoming native and longtime FBI agent William D. Griffith. The UW Department of Criminal Justice sponsors the event. Visit www.uwyo.edu/cj for more information.
