The modern Black Lives Matter movement depicts the continuity of 18th and 19th centuries attempt on the part of Black intellectuals to deconstruct the philosophical, socio-political, economic and religious arguments asserted in the West to justify the inferiority of Black humanity and Black bodies. Arguments principally advanced by Immanuel Kant, David Hume, Thomas Jefferson and Georg Hegel defined Blacks as intellectually and humanly inferior to Whites thus granting legality and social normality to the dehumanization and lynching of Black bodies. These arguments are still being read in the academy and continue to influence the way Blacks are intellectually and humanly perceived. In that light, Black Lives Matter movement has picked up from where Black intellectuals like W.E.B Du Bois, Ida B. Wells, Frederick Douglass, Malcolm X ,Harriet Tubman, Sojourner Truth, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Ella Baker and others left off. The struggle to assert Black humanity, identity and self-hoods take different forms and shapes in the face of unimaginable human destruction and blatant pain caused by law enforcement with legal authority designed to seemingly protect every citizen of the United States regardless of color, class or creed.

Today's public forum provides a descriptive and prescriptive analysis of death and dying in local jails and prisons in the US. There will be a major powerpoint presentation that provides a general scope of inmates' death from the latest reports provided by the Bureau of Justice and others followed by a panel discussion of experts and Q&A time.
Areas of highlight also include: High death rates of Un-convicted individuals awaiting trails in local jails, diseases and suicide as major causes of death, and finally Race, Racism and Racial disparity in the number of death in US local jails and state prisons. Will conclude with policy transformation and "What's Next". Don't Miss It.
