This lecture draws on the lessons learned from a research project investigating the legal and media archives of three cases of police violence against Black women and girls in Canada. I draw on Black feminist articulations of care as a politicized ethics with which to approach and intervene in questions of gendered anti-Black state violence. I discuss the emergent possibilities that a Black feminist ethics of care can create, and attend to the need to abolish carceral systems impacting Black women and girls.
Followed by live Q & A
