Detroiters Speak Fall 2020: Policing Black Power - From Watts to Detroit
Organizing Against Police Repression
This class addresses grassroots efforts to organize against police crimes and abuses during the 1970s. In particular, we will examine Detroit’s anti-STRESS movement, the rise of “community policing” during the Young and Bradley administrations in Detroit and L.A., and the relationship between the violence of deindustrialization, austerity, and globalization, community policing, and the rise of the carceral state.
