Racist Fictions: African Americans, Mass Incarceration and the Mainstreaming of White Supremacy
Today, African Americans comprise twelve percent of the United States' total population, yet they represent 40% of the country's incarcerated people. This high incarceration rate reflects a long history of Black people’s disproportionate arrests, convictions, and confinement in the U.S. prison system—a domain of institutional racism. In this webinar, TCNJ Associate Professor Dr. Leigh-Anne Francis will discuss how her personal identity as a queer person of color working in higher education informs her scholarship on African Americans, mass incarceration, and the mainstreaming of white supremacy. You will leave this webinar with an understanding of Dr. Francis' fascinating and relevant research, as well as a greater appreciation of how personal identity anchors scholarship and professional work in meaningful, and often challenging, ways.
