We are nine months into a deadly pandemic that has disproportionately struck Black and Brown communities. We are centuries into the equally pernicious plague of police violence toward unarmed Black Americans. Both realities are grounded in structural white supremacy. Both have made plain the pervasive inequity baked into the American Experiment. As our moderator, Andre Perry, says in his book, “Know Your Price,” “The deliberate devaluation of Blacks and their communities has had very real, far-reaching, and negative economic and social effects. … But there is nothing wrong with Black people that ending racism can’t solve.” The 2020 murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Rayshard Brooks, and numerous others have forced a confrontation with racial injustice. The conversations, the anger, the protests aren’t new; but these events lend them renewed urgency. How must we meet this moment, and move forward as one? Join Next City as we explore three specific responses to this reckoning with racial justice.
