Duke at Home in the World

The systematic, state-sponsored and rampant killing of black people by the police is a critical political issue in our nation. However, police violence against black people is not unique to the United States. Join us for a conversation on Black community experiences with police violence and resistance with Dr. Christen A. Smith, Associate Professor of Anthropology and African and African Diaspora Studies at The University of Texas at Austin.
