The Princeton Public Library is CLOSED for Labor Day on Monday, so Continuing Conversations will take place at 7pm on TUESDAY, September 3rd to learn about and discuss important ideas in connection with the current state of policing in America.
Slave Patrols. Stop & Frisk. Traffic Stops.
There is no doubt that the institution of policing in Black America is in a state of crisis. Why?
We will look at the origins of policing and how it influences and manifests in policing today, we’ll explore a brief history and purpose of the laws the police have been tasked with enforcing and try to figure out the ‘order’ they are charged with maintaining. Lastly, we’ll look at some of the current manifestations of policing’s racist past and ask questions regarding the future of policing in America.
Please join us this coming Tuesday evening (Sept. 3) at 7pm in the Community Room of the Princeton Public Library, 65 Witherspoon Street, Princeton
