Screening of “Mass Incarceration and the Failure of Civil Rights”

Please join us tonight, Oct. 7, at 7 p.m. for popcorn, drinks and a movie screening of political activist and educator Angela Davis’ Howard Thurman Lecture given at Stetson University in 1999.  In her talk, Davis discusses the structural racism endemic in mass incarceration and how civil rights approaches to this social issue have failed; as such, Davis calls for a “new civil rights movement.” Following the lecture, we will spend time reflecting on what we might learn from Davis’ talk and how we might apply those lessons when addressing mass incarceration today.  The screening will take place in Lee’s Garage in the CUB.  In order to ensure proper social distancing, space is limited to the first 28 students.  Masks are required.  Please register on Engage.  Cultural Credit is available.
