Race at Boiling Point: The Fire This Time
Jun 5, 2020 / 1:00 pm
The nation and the world are bearing witness to yet another spate of police violence against Black people. Heavily armored vehicles roll through city streets. The long-historical fissures of American life and justice are now nakedly visible. This is an urgent moment, one that calls for resolve, thought, and action.
On Friday, June 5, at 1:00 pm PST, UCHRI hosted Race at Boiling Point: The Fire This Time, a conversation with Angela Y. Davis (Emerita, UC Santa Cruz), Herman Gray (Emeritus, UC Santa Cruz), Gaye Theresa Johnson (UC Los Angeles), Robin D. G. Kelley (UC Los Angeles), and Josh Kun (University of Southern California).
