The project that I will be presenting at CRUCA this year is from my Black American Literature Class with Professor Vanessa Diana. We read a book called Citizen, by Claudia Rankine which inspired many thoughts for me. I was specifically intrigued by the portion where Stop-and-Frisk policy was spoken about. There are many quotes and statistics shared in this book about the horrible acts that police officers have done to innocent Black people. The whole semester the class has dove into great detail on police brutality and different policies that have affected Black communities in a negative way. My project will be a powerpoint presentation or an essay depicting police brutality through a social lens relating it back to my social work major.
