The Color of Citizenship: Tracing the Legacies of Japanese Internment from WWII to Stop & Frisk – Part Three

Excerpt, Videos

As such, this event demands frequent reexamination in relation to ongoing conversations regarding post-9/11 special registration, detention, and deportation, as well as long-standing formal and informal practices of profiling and surveillance of communities of color. Part three of this daylong conference examined the legal significance of the incarceration to contemporary local and national state policies directed against communities of color.
