Panel Discussion and Workshop on: ‘Policing Black Lives: Is this too much Noise about Nothing?’ (2)

The Diversity and Equity Committee (DEC) Conversation Series, School of Social Work, Commemorates African Heritage Month with the Second in our two-part series of discussions and interactive workshops on Policing Black Lives. The event is scheduled for 5:30pm – 8:30pm on Friday, February 28, 2020. The panel discussion seeks to interrogate how we look at, define and contribute to discussions on the Policing of Black Lives. Are Black Lives Policed? How, Where and When are Black Lives Policed? Is there one way of looking at and understanding the Policing of Black Lives? What are the effects of the Policing of Black Lives? Are the effects short-lived or enduring? Our panellists will address several questions revolving around the Policing of Black Lives and Bodies within their areas of experience, association and research. An interactive action-oriented workshop facilitated by panellists follows the panel discussion.

SPEAKERS: Dr. Paul Banahene Adjei;  Robert Seymour Wright; Sylvia Parris-Drummond; Dr. Isaac Saney
