As the President of the Black Law Students Association at New England Law | Boston, my chapter recently hosted a panel discussion entitled “Mass Incarceration: Disproportionality of African-Americans in the U.S. Criminal Justice System,” based off Michelle Alexander’s The New Jim Crow. Due to his knowledge and expertise in the area, Reverend George Walters-Sleyon moderated the panel event consisting of four speakers, present and former attorneys, and a retired Massachusetts Superior Court judge. Rev. Walters-Sleyon was remarkable, from his preparation, communication with speakers prior to the event, to the presentation; I was in awe of his work. Moreover, his passion for the topic and willingness to assist on educating not only the members of the organization, law students, and professors, but also the general public on the increasing dilemma of mass incarceration of African-Americans made him the ideal candidate for the position. Articulate and approachable, Rev. Walters-Sleyon facilitated the estimated two-hour discussion, referencing significant and fundamental points from Michelle Alexander’s novel. In contrast to solely adopting Alexander’s perspective on various topics quoted throughout the event, Rev. Walters-Sleyon provided his perception on the particular points in conjunction to presenting the referenced material to the panelists, seeking their viewpoint as well. Furthermore, in order to promote an informative and engrossed discussion, Walters-Sleyon opened the forum to guests, allowing them to direct questions to the speakers on issues spoken during the event but most imperatively, on ways to reduce mass incarceration and the effects of it. I wholeheartedly recommend Reverend George Walters-Sleyon for any speaking engagement, as he was an astounding asset to our event this fall. I hope to work with him again in the near future.- Katherine V. Charles, Black Law Students Association, New England Law | Boston Chapter, President
