Published: Friday, January 20, 2012

The North Carolina Central University School of Law will host a seminar, “The Truth, the Whole Truth and Nothing but the Truth,” on Wednesday, Jan. 25, at 5 p.m. in the Turner Law Building. The seminar will discuss the intersection between race, crime and discrimination as it relates to the history of the U.S. military, the New York Police Department and North Carolina prosecutors in their investigation and prosecution of major drug operations during the 1970s.

Invited guests include Sterling Johnson, retired U. S. District Court judge and the former special drug prosecutor for New York City; Ron Chepesiuk, author of “Sergeant Smack”; and Leslie “Ike” Atkinson, a Goldsboro native who organized a major international drug smuggling operation and is the subject of the Chepesiuk’s book. Law Professor Irving Joyner will moderate the discussion.
