J JOURNAL: NEW WRITING ON JUSTICE reviews THE QUEEN OF MOLOKA’I

BURN

J Journal: New Writing on Justice examines its subject through creative work, directly and tangentially.  Housed at CUNY’s John Jay College of Criminal Justice, one of the nation’s premier criminal justice institutions, JJournal’s contributors have included established and new writers, professionals in the law enforcement field, lawyers, professors in the humanities and social sciences, and prison inmates. Unlike other CJ publications, J Journal, which comes out twice a year, is the country’s first to present its analyses of contemporary justice issues through creative, not scholarly work.  The short stories, poems, and personal narratives in each volume expand reflection on the question:  What is justice?
