We Can’t Breathe

Fri, Feb 6, 2015

Organized in response to the failure to indict the killers of Michael Brown, Eric Garner, and countless other innocent and unarmed citizens—and the massive swelling of anger, grief, and public protest that followed—this urgent and interdisciplinary conversation explores race, justice, and urban space today. Topics include the role of density in racial politics, the disproportionate targeting of low-income minorities by broken windows police tactics, the legacies of slavery and Jim Crow racism on the physical and social structure of US cities, the militarization of law enforcement, and the use of urban space as a stage and platform for dissent.
