The Humanities and the Police
Join us for a conversation on how disciplines like African American Studies, History, Sociology, Law and Politics are being used as tools for training police. This panel features three local educators who are working with police in settings such as the National Museum of African American History and Culture, the Anacostia Community Museum, and local college campuses.
What are the goals of these programs, and are they having an impact? How do they align with the overall mission and culture of the Metropolitan Police Department in a city where black residents are the target of more than 90% of arrests, but comprise just 47% of the population?
