The Context of White Supremacy welcomes the return of Dr. Amanishakete Ani. With research investigating pathological culture and thought in European systems, Dr. Ani uses her scholarship to resist White Supremacy and support black liberation. She last visited with us in February of this year to discuss the ongoing conflict involving three former University of Albany students. Alexis Briggs, Ariel Agudio and Asha Burwell were at the center of a 2016 melee on a CDTA bus. The young ladies reported being assaulted by a gang of intoxicated Whites. However, the three black females were the only people charged with criminal offenses. After a year of court cases and punitive action from the school, none of the ladies are enrolled at the University of Albany. We’ll discuss the aftermath of this event and how it impacted their lives. Judge Roger McDonough, one of the judges involved with this case, offers another example of White judicial power over Black lives. We’ll also review how the University allegedly retaliated against Dr. Ani – who advocated relentlessly for these young ladies and indicted the schools Racist conduct.
