A talk with Charlottesville Chief of Police Dr. RaShall M. Brackney.
The PVCC One Book Program presents a talk with Chief of Police Dr. RaShall M. Brackney entitled “Black Lives Matter, Policing, and Freedom of Speech in Charlottesville."
The intersectionality of policing and the dehumanizing of minority groups is a long standing practice built on institutions of supremacy. These institutions form the foundations of the modern-day criminal justice system. This talk will further examine the cross-intersectionality of the seminal work by Michelle Alexander’s, The New Jim Crow with How to be an Antiracist by Ibram X. Kendi, in order to lay the foundations for dismantling systems meant to silence marginalized communities.
Please join us for this important talk. Preregistration is required. Register at: https://vccs.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_isua9hpZSf6CeZT01smXVw
The One Book Program at Piedmont Virginia Community College is an institution-wide initiative whose goal is to bring together students, faculty, staff, and members of the community to read the same book and take part in activities inspired by the text. The program seeks to create a learning community that will come together around the book to explore themes and values found in it, and as a result, it is hoped that One Book activities will increase engagement and interdisciplinary dialogue among the participants.
