Building Power to Fight for the Common Good: Black Lives Matter, Racial Justice, and Labor
Using examples from their own research, organizing, and media work, Todd Wolfson and Chenjerai Kumanyika will discuss how Black Lives Matter is a response to long-held racial disparities. They will also explore how the movement has critiqued systemic racism in criminal justice and consider how this fight intersects with historic and contemporary labor struggles.
