Why Race Matters #6: How to be an Anti-Racist – Racism in Massachusetts
June 3, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Speakers: Dr. Phillipe Copeland
Date: June 3, 2021, 1-3pm
Drawing on the ideas of W.E.B Du Bois, Cedric Robinson, Angela Davis and others, this lecture will apply an Abolition frame to racial inequities in Massachusetts. It will examine how these inequities reflect the operation of racial capitalism, with the criminal legal, family preservation and mental health systems exemplifying these dynamics. Participants will gain a better understanding of systemic racism specifically in Massachusetts and the tools necessary to become an Anti-Racist and address and influence racism in the legal systems in which we practice.
