George Floyd's murder by police officer Derek Chauvin threw patterns of deeply racist police brutality into sharp relief. The responsive uprising was only a few years ago, so why didn't the historic protests achieve more substantial reform? In After Black Lives Matter: Policing and Anti-Capitalist Struggle, Cedrick G. Johnson, professor of Black studies and political science at the University of Illinois, posits that the movement "failed to locate the central racial injustice that underpins the crisis of policing: socioeconomic inequality." Hear Johnson share his thoughts on anticapitalist, downwardly redistributive politics at this talk.
