Black History Month: History of Black Abolitionist Politics & Actions w/ Demointé Wesley (plus a special announcement)
Show Notes

DeMointé Wesley returns for their third appearance on these airwaves, (but FIRST as a full-time Amplify RJ team member) to talk about the upcoming workshop series "History of Black Abolitionist Politics & Action" starting this Saturday, February 5. 

(Listen closely for another special announcement at 1:02.)

This Black History Month join the Amplify RJ community in pushing the conversation about abolition into more spaces!

Carceral mindsets harm everyone, but somehow we still rely on them in society. Learn the history of the political movements and actions of abolitionists who have come before us so we can help others imagine and build a world without the need for police and prisons.

Every Saturday in February (9-10am PST) DeMointé Wesley and other aspiring abolitionists will explore:

  • Feb. 5: The Struggle for the Abolition of Slavery
  • Feb. 12: Black Liberation, State Repression, and the Anti-Prison Movement
  • Feb. 19: Police and Prison Abolition Today
  • Feb. 26: A Black Abolitionist Future

Each session will be accompanied by an asynchronous video lesson giving laying the ground work for the Saturday conversations. Saturday sessions will be recorded for those who are unable to attend live.
