Event description

Description

In a very special pre-conference preview - Black Women for Wellness will be hosting a special conversation with Dr. Ruha Benjamin from Princeton University to talk about her new book, Race after Technology. Race After Technology is a brilliant, beautifully argued, engagingly written, and groundbreaking work. Ruha Benjamin is that rare scholar whose sophisticated understanding of science and technology is matched by her deep knowledge of race and racialization. Here she guides us into fresh terrain for understanding and tackling the persistence of racial inequality. This book should be read by everyone committed to creating a more just world.” -Imani Perry, Princeton University, author of Vexy Thing and Looking for Lorraine.

Race After Technology is essential reading, decoding as it does the ever-expanding and morphing technologies that have infiltrated our everyday lives and our most powerful institutions. These digital tools predictably replicate and deepen racial hierarchies — all too often strengthening rather than undermining pervasive systems of racial and social control.” -Michelle Alexander, Union Theological Seminary, author of The New Jim Crow
