Detroiters Speak Fall 2020: Policing Black Power - From Watts to Detroit

Emergency Management and Policing the Poor
Wednesday, November 18, 2020
6:00-8:00 PM
Off Campus Location
Note: This is the last class in a 4-part series. For more information on the series, please visit our website:

The last session will recap the previous three courses before expanding our definition of state violence and violence beyond formal “policing.” Using local examples, our speakers will address how the elite elide democracy as a means to profit off of Black people while punitively blaming them for conditions externally imposed upon them. These containment and policing schemes endanger Black lives and futures, and force the poorest urban residents to subsidize the cost of welfare capitalism and gentrification.
