Racial Capitalism, Climate Change, and Epidemiological Crises
This is the third and final event in the Racial Capitalism series, brought to you by the Racial Justice Committee.
During this meeting, Dr. Jasmine Noelle Yarish aims to lead a conversation that deploys Robinson’s analysis to think about the connections between racial capitalism, climate change, and epidemiological crises which has recently been documented by artists in and around Philadelphia with the recent virtual gallery platformed by Mural Arts Philadelphia entitled “Covid-19 + Climate Change” (see preparatory readings list).
