*************

Community Church of Boston annually presents a distiguished address to remember a frequent speaker at the Community Church "Free Pulpit in Action" during the 1940s and 50s, noted scholar and activist for Black Liberation and world peace, Dr. W.E.B. DuBois.

We are pleased to have J. Soffiyah Elijah present this year's address in memory of the legacy of W.E.B. DuBois. Prof. Elijah will discuss her
thoughts on what DuBois would think of the targeting and systematic dismantling of our civil liberties today as well as the neglect of basic
human rights.

Born in Queens, New York, Ms. Elijah earned a B.A. from Cornell University and a J.D. from Wayne State University Law School in Michigan. She serves as Deputy Director of the Criminal Justice Institute at Harvard Law School and is responsible for leading the Institute's work to address the urgent needs of the powerless, voiceless and indigent in the criminal justice system, as well as supervises law students representing adult and juvenile clients in Roxbury and Dorchester.

With more than 20 years in the legal profession, she has represented numerous political prisoners and social activists including Kwame Turé,
Marilyn Buck, and Sundiata Acoli. Prof. Elijah's current scholarship focuses on criminal justice issues and the prison industrial complex.
