Thursday, June 23rd 8:00PM Eastern / 5:00PM Pacific The Context of White Supremacy hosts the 6th study session on Catherine Pelonero’s 2017 publication, Absolute Madness:…
This week we discuss the system of modern enslavement as it affects US descendants of slaves. The false narratives, the systemic traps, the criminalization processes, and the racial disparities which are uniquely over-represented in black communities. We’ll be joined by the Director of Decarcerate Louisiana, Curtis Davis.
DeLa just had their slavery abolition bill #HB298 pass through its first committee hearing on May 16th. A complete reversal from last year’s loss in a 9-6 vote. In Louisiana, Black people constituted 33% of state residents, but 52% of people in jail and 67% of people in prison. Since 1970, the total jail population has increased by 665%. We’re going to explain why.
We’ve got some great music mixes for you and a powerful Bridging The Gap segment. This will be another must hear episode. Count on it.
