Professor Allen-Hornblower was a participant in the powerful and moving  Abolitionists Imaginaries One Day Symposium presented by MoMA PS1 in conjunction with the exhibition Marking Time: Art in the Age of Mass Incarceration curated by RU Professor Nicole R. Fleetwood (recipient of the National Book Critics Circle Award).
