Abolitionist Tools for the New Jim Code 

Race+After+Tech_Cover Ruha Benjamin, professor of African American Studies and founding director of the Ida B. Wells Just Data Lab at Princeton University, investigates the social dimensions of science, medicine, and technology with a focus on the relationship between innovation and inequity, health and justice, knowledge and power. On March 24 at 7 p.m., Benjamin will give a webinar lecture on her award-winning book Race After Technology: Abolitionist Tools for the New Jim Code. According to the publisher, Race After Technology “cuts through tech-industry hype to understand how emerging technologies can reinforce white supremacy and …shows how a range of discriminatory designs encode inequity.” Her lecture is presented by the Park Street Corporation Speaker Series and co-sponsored by the Lowell Humanities Series and the Schiller Institute for Integrated Science and Society.
