In Episode 57, we are joined by Dr. Cedric G. Johnson, Professor of Black Studies and Political Science at the University of Illinois at Chicago, to discuss his book After Black Lives Matter: Policing and Anti-Capitalist Struggle. We discuss the origins of modern policing, the classed reality of Black life in the US, and how neoliberalism dooms us all to poverty and catastrophe unless we act -- together -- to stop it. We were so excited to hear Cedric talk about this important book, and we know you will be too.
Part of the Talking Shit series.
