Black Men and Invisibility: How to Rethink the Criminal Justice System

10 September 2015, 6pm – 8pm

Please join the New Art Exchange and the Centre for Research in Race and Rights (C3R) at the University of Nottingham for the last in its five-part debate
series, accompanying the Get Up Stand Up international civil rights

On September 10, we will be exploring "Black Men and Invisibility: How to Rethink the Criminal Justice System"

What is the impact of the criminal justice system on the identity/visibility of black men? 26% of the UK prison population in Britain are black and minority ethnic individuals: how can we address the disparity of mass Incarceration of black men? How has race shaped responses to violence, crime and disorder in both the US and the UK? How have the development of police forces in the US and the UK influenced one another? How has the development? of urban policing in the US and the UK been affected by race and ethnicity? How do we move the agenda of race and crime to a more visible presence on the wider social justice landscape? Racism Toolkit – training ourselves as a means of bringing fairness into social justice.

We'll hear from the scholar-activists Dr. Martin Glynn (Centre for Health and Social Care Improvement), Dr. Vivien Miller (C3R), both leaders in the field of criminal justice studies and Harminder Singh, artist, independent consultant and lecturer (Warwick Business School) then continue to a debate.

Chair: Bo Olawoye (Freelance Learning & Engagement Curator)
