Part 1: The Analysis of Anti-Black Ideology

EPISODE 5

Audio Nuggets is honored and filled with gratitude to be joined by the legendary racial and family justice scholar and activist Dorothy Roberts. Dorothy utilizes her critical analysis of Roe, reproductive justice and family policing to demonstrate how interconnected systems and racist policies have had a devastating and violent impact on Black families.  In this explosive and electrifying episode, Dorothy offers her expertise in activism, organizing, and truth-telling as gifts and nuggets to the audience.  “Abolition already exists for white families.” Therefore, abolition is the only way to transform the family policing system so that Black families have the opportunity to glimpse a life without a punitive system’s  obsessive attachment to terrorizing their families. Dorothy and MFG are creating culture to be bold, explicit, and courageous in the name of justice, liberation, and abolition.  Through this conversation, you will be encouraged to know that your work to advance justice matters in this movement and in THIS moment.  We MUST make it important enough, vital enough, and a moment worth fighting for. This is our legacy. This is our succession! 

Dorothy Roberts is the 14th Penn Integrates Knowledge Professor, the George A. Weiss University Professor of Law & Sociology, and the Raymond Pace & Sadie Tanner Mossell Alexander Professor of Civil Rights at University of Pennsylvania. An internationally acclaimed scholar, activist, and social critic, she has written and lectured extensively on the interplay of gender, race, and class in legal issues concerning reproduction, bioethics, and child welfare. Her major books include Fatal Invention: How Science, Politics, and Big Business Re-create Race in the Twenty-first Century (New Press, 2011); Shattered Bonds: The Color of Child Welfare (Basic Books, 2002), and Killing the Black Body: Race, Reproduction, and the Meaning of Liberty (Pantheon, 1997). Her newest book was released in April 2022, Torn Apart. (Basic Books, 2022). She is the author of more than 100 scholarly articles and book chapters, as well as a co-editor of six books on such topics as constitutional law and women and the law.
“The powerful Western image of childhood innocence does not seem to benefit Black children. Black children are born guilty.”
