Neta Bomani and Mariame Kaba will discuss their new zine collaboration, “Groundhog Day: The Killing of Bonita Carter.” Groundhog Day excavates part of the history of Black people’s resistance to state violence (specifically policing). It’s often said that few people rally around the injury or death of Black women to demand justice. Yet the truth is that there are examples that contradict this assertion. The resistance varies in scale and impact and it is sometimes hidden from our view. However, where there is injustice, you will also find some resistance especially led by Black women.
Mariame is an organizer, educator and curator based in New York City. Neta is an artist and organizer based in NYC.
