Policing Black Lives: State Violence in Canada from Slavery to the Present

[OCAP Speakers Series: Free event with meal, childcare, wheelchair access and tokens]

Delving behind Canada's veneer of multiculturalism and tolerance, this talk will trace the violent realities of anti-Black racism from the slave ships to prisons, classrooms and beyond, providing a comprehensive account of nearly four hundred years of state-sanctioned surveillance, criminalization and
punishment off Black lives in Canada.

Speaker: Robyn Maynard

Robyn is a Black feminist writer, grassroots community organizer and intellectual based in Montreal. Her work has appeared in the Toronto Star, the Montreal Gazette, World Policy Journal and Canadian Women Studies Journal.

This event is part of the monthly OCAP Speakers Series, where we gather to discuss that are critical to the success of poor people's movements. #FightToWin
