Thursday, March 5th 8:00PM Eastern/ 5:00PM Pacific

The Context of White Supremacy hosts our second study session on Dr. Sylvia Hood Washington’s Packing Them In: An Archaeology of Environmental Racism in Chicago, 1865-1954. An environmental epidemiologist, environmental engineer and environmental historian, Dr. Washington is Chief Environmental Research Scientist at Environmental Health Research Associates, LLC. With thirty years of research experience examining the impact of industrial pollution on human health and ecosystems, she’s the creator and editor-in-chief of the first international environmental health disparities journal, Environmental Justice. We’ll discuss her 2004 text, Packing Them In: An Archaeology of Environmental Racism in Chicago, 1865-1954. Chicago is a massively important city in North America, black people have sojourned to this region for over a century. Consequently, Whites have devoted a staggering amount of time, energy and resources to study, warehouse and terrorize and poison the black people of the “windy city.” During the opening session of the book, she discussed the ways some groups of people were initially classified as not white. Consequently, they were subjected to poisonous environments – although not to the same level as black Chicagoans. These racially ambiguous people were eventually able to be accepted as White, and could thus flee the polluted areas designed to warehouse black people. #BlackGetBack
