    Name: Virtual Community Conversations - Race & Policing
    Date: August 14, 2020
    Time: 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM CDT
    Event Description:
    In preparation for our NEA Big Read of Citizen: An American Lyric by Claudia Rankine, Shake Rag Alley is hosting a series of virtual community conversations relevant to ideas explored within the book. These 1.5 hour Zoom meetings will give us a chance to explore issues Claudia Rankine addresses before taking a deep dive into the text this fall.

    Dr. Michael Thornton will speak on how racial concepts impact policing nationwide and in Wisconsin. He will offer insight and data on current practices as well as an overview of policing theories such as: the broken windows theory, community policing, stop and frisk, and the school-to-prison pipeline.
