The Slavery Since Emancipation Speaker Series

Talk Description: Four "peculiar institutions" have served to define and confine African Americans in U.S. society over the past four centuries: racialized slavery, the Jim Crow system of caste terrorism, the urban ghetto, and the hybrid formed by the concatenation of the hyperghetto and the carceral system. In this lecture, Professor Wacquant will discuss their similarities and differences and draw out the consequences of this historical model for the current scholarly and policy debates around race and citizenship.
