Reading group: Policing Black Lives
29/04/2021 @ 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.”: https://fernwoodpublishing.ca/book/policing-black-lives
For this second meeting, please read Chapter 2 and Chapter 3. You should still come even if you don’t get all the reading done, there will be lots to talk about regardless.
