This week we continue sharing a panel hosted by Haymarket Books on the abolitionist struggle to stop Cop City. In this section, we hear Hugh Farrell in conversation with Sarah Haley, a leading historian of Black feminism in the South, organizer Kwame Olufemi of Community Movement Builders, and journalist Micah Herskind. Haley roots contemporary resistance to Cop City within a longer Black abolitionist trajectory, while Olufemi and Herskind walk us through the current state of repression and momentum in the Stop Cop City movement.
Our first parts of the panel are here and here.
