Womens Magazine – August 25, 2014

podcast

As the nation has been shocked  by the images of overwhelming police violence in Ferguson, Missouri and the epidemic of murders by police of Black men around the country we have also been inspired by the organic uprisings in response. KPFA radio’s Women’s Magazine will look at how police violence is not only racialized but is also gendered. We will talk to journalist and author Thandisizwe Chimurenga about the racial and patriarchal aspects of police violence, and to UCLA Law Professor Kimberle Crenshaw about how an intersectional feminist perspective is missing from the mainstream and left analysis in these post racial times.
