The Racial History of Policing in America | BK Live

September 29, 2016

Almost like clockwork, they keep coming: the highly publicized incidents connecting Black victims and police officers with guns. And every time, racial disparities in policing become part of the conversation, but rarely do we take time to dive into the roots and solutions of the issue.

Returning to BK Live is Monifa Akinwole-Bandele, a blogger, human rights activist, and community engagement consultant, working with Communities United for Police Reform, and Jason D. Williamson, a staff attorney with the Criminal Law Reform Project of the American Civil Liberties Union and an adjunct professor at NYU School of Law.
