White Supremacy Through Violence: Lynching in America, Then and Now
Tuesday, January 12, 2021, 05:00pm - 06:15pm

The year 2020 has allowed us all to bear witness to a disturbing and unavoidable reality, lynching is not a relic of a Jim Crow past. It is a modern form of racial terror. I will examine how lynching sits squarely on a historical continuum of systemic racism and racial othering. I will examine how the recent killings of African Americans force us to confront a sordid past, and work diligently to create a future defined by equity and compassion.
