When I heard that my 21-year-old son, a student at Harvard, had been stopped by New York City police on more than one occasion during the brief summer he spent as a Wall Street intern, I was angry.
On one occasion, while wearing his best business suit, he was forced to lie face-down on a filthy sidewalk because—well, let’s be honest about it, because of the color of his skin. As an attorney and a college professor who teaches criminal justice classes, I knew that his constitutional rights had been violated.

"Do you remember the most frightened you’ve ever been?""When I thought I’d have to raise my son alone. His father and I weren’t getting along.""Sounds like you worked things out with the father?""No. The fear just went away when I learned I could do it on my own."
