On February 2, 2013, the Michigan Journal of Race and Law hosted a symposium at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, MI, entitled "Inhumane and Ineffective: Solitary Confinement in Michigan and Beyond." As described by the flyer posted below and the Journal's website, the all-day event featured a keynote address given by James Forman, Jr.
