The Smile Face became so popular, the U.S. Post Office issued a stamp with the smiley face.

Harvey Ball, a commercial artist from Worcester, Massachusetts created the smiley face in 1963. The State Mutual Life Insurance Company hired Harvey as a free lance artist to create a smiley face for use in improving company morale. There is some controversy over the smiley face's creation. French entrepreneur named Franklin Loufrani claimed to have invented it in 1968. In 1971 he patented it in 80 countries.

Hear from one of the authors how this process took place, what concerns you should have as a citizen and taxpayer--where is your money going? what is it doing? are communities safer? are we being smart on crime or simly paying lipservice to being "tough" on crime? Take this opportunity to engage in a conversation about one of the most important civil rights issues of our time in the 21st century.
