Join Project NIA and Gallery 400 to kick off a month of events focused on how Black women have been and continue to be targets of state violence. A number of Chicago groups have come together in the wake of Dante Servin's acquittal to organize a series of events during Black August that will highlight and lift up the stories and experiences of cis and trans Black women who are currently or have been targets of state violence.
You can find more information about all of the events here.
"Killing Black Women: Race, Gender and Capital Punishment" centers the lives of Black women who have been murdered by the state through the death penalty.
This event includes a screening of the film "The Execution of Wanda Jean (90 minutes)" followed by a discussion about how Black women have been targeted by the death penalty.
Space is limited and an RSVP is required. Please only sign up if you are certain to attend. Be considerate of others.
