#1 in Criminalization: Deconstructing the Myth of the Criminal Black Body

Myron Long, Victorious Hall, Aaron Cahn​
Friday, 2:15 pm to 3:45 pm -- Sellinger 008

Our workshop is a model and guide to disrupting the structures in our schools that negatively impact our students of color. We will use images and themes from the documentary 13th to understand how the adoption of the 13th amendment led to the creation of the criminalized black body and to explore the racism we are seeing, perpetuating, or are ambivalent to in our schools in hopes to empower participants to be vulnerable and interrupt these structures.
