The Epidemic of Police Brutality
May 7, 2018 @ 2:00 pm EDT
Join NYU DC Dialogues in a panel discussion called, The Epidemic of Police Brutality. Despite decades of progression and advancement in human rights since the Civil Rights and Jim Crow era, America is still perpetuating the same challenges.
In light of recent movements and headlining stories of black and brown men and women losing their lives at the hands of law enforcement, the issue of police brutality — while it never left — is brought, again, to the surface. Police brutality and police shootings of unarmed people of color has become an epidemic in our country. Whether it be systemic, interpersonal, ideological, internalized, or institutionalized, oppression and racism are very much intertwined in the fabric of the United States.
The conversation includes Andrea Ritchie and Jonathan Capehart who will break down, analyze, and discuss this problem and what we can do to enforce change. This dialogue was conceived and created by NYU Liberal Studies student Kai Byron.
