We invite you to join the Art & Justice Collaborative, the Schell Center, and BLSA for Love in Justice: A Conversation with Halim Flowers. Mr. Flowers is a visual artist, spoken word performer, businessman, and author. At only sixteen years old, Mr. Flowers was sentenced to 40 years to life after being charged as an accomplice to felony murder. In 2019, after serving 22 years and 2 months behind bars, Mr. Flowers was released under a new juvenile life re-sentencing law. Since then, he has worked prolifically as an artist and activist. His recent achievements include exhibiting his work in the MoMA, collaborating with Kim Kardashian on her documentary The Justice Project, and serving on the Board of Directors of the Frederick Douglass Project for Justice. Mr. Flowers will discuss his experience in prison, including being a jail house lawyer, criminal justice reform, fashion, and fine-art. Lunch will be served.
