Policing Black Lives: Reading group with Robyn Maynard
10/06/2021 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 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 with the author herself! Robyn Maynard will join the call to answer questions and discuss the book we have been studying.
“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 meeting, please read the Chapter 8 and the Conclusion. You should still come even if you don’t get all the reading done, there will be lots to talk about regardless.
