The Marshall Project | We Are Witnesses

by Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture


The Schomburg Center and The Marshall Project proudly presents a discussion about the upcoming release of We Are Witnesses. This is a video exploration of our criminal justice system. Twenty people tell their stories — a crime victim, a corrections officer, a judge, a formerly incarcerated woman, a parent, a child, a district attorney and more. The Schomburg will show excerpts and host a panel discussion, exploring this timely project.

For free events, we generally overbook to ensure a full house. All registered seats are released 15 to 30 minutes before start time, so we recommend that you arrive early.


Please note that holding seats in the Langston Hughes Auditorium is strictly prohibited and there is no food or drinks allowed anywhere in the Schomburg Center.

Please send all press inquiries (photo, video, interviews, audio-recording, etc) at least 24-hours before the day of the program to Ayofemi Kirby at
