Mason Author Series: Policing Black Bodies

Mason Author Series: Policing Black Bodies

Angela J. Hattery, Professor and Director, Women and Gender Studies, and Earl Smith, Adjunct Faculty, Sociology will discuss their book, Policing Black Bodies: How Black Lives are Surveilled and How to Work for Change. In Policing Black Bodies the authors make a compelling case that the policing of Black bodies goes far beyond individual stories and isolated incidents of brutality. They connect the regulation of African American people in many settings, including the public education system and the criminal justice system, into a powerful narrative about the myriad ways Black bodies are policed.
