The Black Lives Matter Utah Community Education Initiative has been born out of the desperate necessity to educate ourselves on Black history, Black resistance, and the operations of White Supremacy. Knowledge actually is power, and as Assata Shakur has said: “No one is going to give you the education you need to overthrow them.” We build community strength, resistance and resilience through educating ourselves.
Below are links to readings for our twice monthly study group, starting with the most current:
- Sunday October 29th: We will be reading “Hidden Histories, Racialized Gender and the Legacy of Reconstruction: The Story of U.S. v. Cruikshank,” a chapter I co-wrote with Angela Harris for a law textbook, Women in the Law Stories, published by Foundation Press. I have scanned and uploaded it Here
- Sunday October October 15th: Slavery and the U.S. Constitution. Slavery Provisions of the U.S. Constitution
