The C.O.W.S. w/ The Black Student Union at UC Berkeley

Tuesday, April 28th 8:00PM Eastern/ 5:00PM Pacific

listen-000000The Context of White Supremacy welcomes the UC Berkeley Black Student Union. These Bay Area black scholars crafted a list of 10 demands “to improve conditions of black students on campus.” Chancellor Nicholas Dirks ultimately responded to the demands by “[removing] his office from the responsibility to implement solutions.” The undeterred students coordinated a massive protest on Saturday, April 18th. They shutdown Sather Gate to publicize the Racist academic environment black students are subjected to. Relatives of Oscar Grant were in attendance. These rebellious scholars linked the White Power that governs their prestigious university to the White Power that extinguishes the lives of Rekia Boyd, Miriam Carey, Kenneth Harding, Jr. and many more. They’ve asked that a building on campus be renamed for former Black Panther and “wanted terrorist” Assata Shakur. Generally, Whites aren’t much for forgiving or commemorating black females with natural hair or “cop killers.”
