Flesh, the law, and black humanity

A panel of BIPOC critical thinkers construct an imagined future. Tracking back to the present, they bare the socio - legal and political architectures that imprison and kill ideas, bodies and futures.

What might we do to intercept and subvert the necropolitical conditions where flesh, the law, and black humanity reside and die.

This is an AUSLAN interpreted event
