"The Rise of Carceral Power in Chicago: Mapping Race, Place, and Sex Along the Color Line"

When: Mon., Dec. 8, 7 p.m. 2014

In the midst of last week's Ferguson protests, Rashad Shabazz was among the many who reacted via Twitter: "We have to reckon with the fact that Black people are confronted with racist violence in public space," he declared, punctuating his post with a #blackgeography hashtag. At 7 this evening, the University of Vermont professor will have more than 140 characters to discuss questions of race, gender and class at the Worner Campus Center's Gaylord Hall (902 N. Cascade Ave., 389-6607). His free lecture, entitled "The Rise of Carceral Power in Chicago," addresses the broader issues of "mapping race, place, and sex along the color line," a matter of concern that's remained all too relevant for all too long. — Bill Forman
