About The Event
This session highlights and examines the American legal, economic, and religious institutions of Anti-Black rape (arranged primarily against Black women), pedophilia, human sex trafficking and enslavement. This course content, in an explicit and provocative (triggering to many) fashion, examines the ways in which pedophilia and rape were infused into White legal, political, economic, and governmental systems, and highlights the emergence of Black rage and anger as the result of White terror. One main focal point is amplifying and elevating anti-Blackness as the underlying principle for these institutions, rather than focusing on enslaved Black persons – as free Black persons, free Indians (as they were referred to in laws) were terrorized in many ways that are highlighted and defined within the legal context. We continue examining the premise of Anti-Black racism as psychopathic and sociopathic proclivities, and its embeddedness in American/U.S. culture. The years/timeframe covered are 1650 – 1740.
