Reading Group: Policing Black Lives

27/05/2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EDT

Join Spring Magazine as we read and discuss Robyn Maynard’s book Policing Black Lives: State Violence in Canada from Slavery to Present.

“Delving behind Canada’s veneer of multiculturalism and tolerance, Policing Black Lives traces the violent realities of anti-blackness from the slave ships to prisons, classrooms and beyond. Robyn Maynard provides readers with the first comprehensive account of nearly four hundred years of state-sanctioned surveillance, criminalization and punishment of Black lives in Canada.”

For this fourth meeting, please read the Chapter 6 and 7. You should still come even if you don’t get all the reading done, there will be lots to talk about regardless.

Exciting news: Robin Maynard will be joining our discussion on our next meeting (June 10, Save the date!)


7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EDT
