In this installment of the W. E. B. Du Bois Research Institute Colloquium Series, Charity Clay, an Associate Professor in the sociology department at Xavier University of Louisiana, an HBCU in New Orleans, will present on her project "Systemic Police Terrorism: A Conceptual Framework". The project seeks to develop a conceptual framework to understand the non-fatal and collective impact of Systemic Police Terrorism on Targeted Black Communities. This framework shifts the current understanding of the relationship between policing and Black communities in the United States away from the hyperfocus on singular incidents of fatal use-of-force and toward an expansive view of the ways that both the most extreme and subtle aspects of policing (proactive, reactive and reporting) terrorize members of targeted Black communities.

Hutchins Center events and exhibitions are accessible, free, and open to the public, unless otherwise noted.
