Attorney/entrepreneur discusses her riveting memoir
Brittany's riveting memoir A Knock at Midnight is at once a coming-of-age story and a powerful evocation of what it takes to bring hope and justice to a system built to resist them both.
Brittany K. Barnett was only a law student when she came across the case that would change her life forever — that of Sharanda Jones, single mother, business owner, and, like Brittany, Black daughter of the rural South.
A victim of America's devastating war on drugs, Sharanda had been torn away from her young daughter and was serving a life sentence without parole — for a first-time drug offense.
Brittany K. Barnett is an award-winning attorney and entrepreneur focused on social impact investing.
