DESCRIPTION

  “Arrested Justice: Black Women, Violence and America's Prison Nation” by Beth E. Richie

Saturday, February 1, 2014 | 11am-1pm

This lecture will focus on the ways that the prison industrial complex has served to exacerbate violence against Black women.  The emphasis will be on intimate partner abuse as well as systematic violence and the role that race, class, gender, sexuality and other markers of social disadvantage put people in the path of the punishment industry.  It will include the redemptive possibility of prison abolition as philosophical and practical solution.

Beth E. Richie, PhD is an anti-violence activist and author working in several social justice movements.  She is a Professor and Director or the Institute for Research on Race and Public Policy at UIC.
