Ava DuVernay The Prison Michelle Alexander

In the spotlight

August 25, 2015

Professor Michelle Alexander (seated) discusses her research with acclaimed film maker Ava DuVernay, who directed the movie Selma and Middle of Nowhere, which won the Best Director Prize at the Sundance Film Festival in 2012. DuVernay’s newest project is a documentary entitled The Prison. She spent the day on campus, and interviewed Alexander about her work on the mass incarceration of minorities.  Moritz professors are often sought-out by national media for commentary and insight on hot topics, and in 2014 were quoted more than 400 times.
