CNBC to Tackle Incarceration at Annual Confab: Dec. 6-9, 2011

According to ABC, “The United States leads the industrialized world in incarceration. In fact, the U.S. rate of incarceration (762 per 100,000) is five to eight times that of other highly developed countries, according to The Sentencing Project, a criminal justice think tank.

[One] of the key factors for the record imprisonment rate [is]:

Race: Black males continue to be incarcerated at an extraordinary rate. Black males make up 35.4 percent of the jail and prison population — even though they make up less than 10 percent of the overall U.S population. Four percent of U.S. black males were in jail or prison last year, compared to 1.7 percent of Hispanic males and .7 percent of white males. In other words, black males were locked up at almost six times the rate of their white counterparts.”

During the week of December 6-9, 2011, CNBC will convene its annual “Consultation” at the Marriott Hotel in Richmond, VA., to address a number of concerns that are plaguing the African American community. However, at the top of the agenda will be incarceration. In fact, there will be a series of speakers and panelists to address the issues, problems and suggested solutions.

On another note, CNBC has also slightly restructured itself to accommodate more independent congregations, explained President Jackie Burton. “Individual churches can now join us. They do not have to be apart of one of our nine black denominations, but can also be African Americans in historical or mainstream denominations.”
