Reading Group: Policing Black Lives
May 13 @ 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 third meeting, please read the Chapter 4 and 5. You should still come even if you don’t get all the reading done, there will be lots to talk about regardless.
