Interrupting systemic violence, restorative accountability and reparative policy frameworks: A comparative conversation on race, gender and the urban economy of place in South Africa and the U.S.

Apr 7, 2016, 5:00 pm EDT
Weill Hall, O'Neill Classroom (1230)
The social, structural and systemic violence prevalent in poor urban and peri-urban communities continues to have devastating consequences for the human beings—men, women and children—who live there. These communities, designated commonly as poor “Communities of Color,” find themselves living in vicious sets of circumstances, having to contend with captive and destructive social and economic conditions of existential emergency from which very few escape. This comparative panel conversation will critically engage discourse approaches that blame poor ‘black, brown, red’ and other ‘communities of color’ for the violence they experience socially, without addressing the complex historical, political and policy legacies of pain.
