Daphne Robinson is an author based in Shreveport, Louisiana. She is passionate about raising awareness on issues concerning criminal justice, and juvenile reform in particular. She offers her perspective as an industry insider, as well as an African American woman who experienced the pitfalls of the justice system first hand for 25 years. She knows about the problems that hold back reforms, and she is a strong advocate for change. Her book, “Delinquent: How The American Justice System Is Failing Black Children,” is actually for people working in the juvenile justice system as well as the criminal justice system, regardless of their background. She wants to help make an actionable change in the way that black children are so often misrepresented (and overrepresented) in the justice system, but they also deserve a voice that might be denied for them due to lack of privilege and allies.
