The Context of White Supremacy welcomes Dr. Amanishakete Ani. An assistant professor at the University of Albany in New York, Dr. Ani examines pathological culture and thought in European systems, resistance against Racism/White supremacy, and women’s health and child birth. Dr. Ani is just one of the University of Albany faculty members who mobilized to support a trio of black female scholars who reported being verbally and physically attacked by a drunken White mob on a CDTA public bus in January of 2016. The incident received a large amount of attention; Hillary Clinton spoke about the matter during her run for president. But weeks later, the three black females were charged with assault and filing a false report. We discussed this case in detail with one of the filmmakers of, INDEFENSIBLE: The Wrongful Prosecution of the Albany Three. We’ll ask Dr. Ani about the case and if her public support of these accused black scholars has caused her any problems.
