Fatima Al Qadiri is taking part in a one of a series of lunchtime conversations on #BlackLivesMatter at London’s ICA on October 28.
Presented as part of the Culture Now programme, the series “for the culturally curious” has invited New York-based artist, musician and composer to discuss the rise of #BlackLivesMatter with Christina Heatherton and Jordan T. Camp, who co-edited the book Policing the Planet: Why the Policing Crisis Led to Black Lives Matter. It maps what the press release calls “the rise of broken-windows policing and how this led to the current policing crisis,” while the event as whole comes in response to “a series of high-profile police killings of people of colour and centuries of racist brutality,” that gave rise to the #BlackLivesMatter movement that questions “the issue of policing and mass incarceration to the central political question of the age.”
