Black & Blue: Discussing The Relationship Between BPD & Communities Of Color

[Via Voices of Liberation]

In the wake of yet another killing of a young Black man by Police, this time in St. Louis, we invite you to join us for a Community Town Hall Meeting on police and community relations right here in Boston where BPD have shot and killed more than 20 people in the last 20 years, all of whom were Black Latino or Cape Verdean. Where a recent study entitled Black, Brown and Targeted by the ACLU of Massachusetts found that blacks made up 63% of the number of stop-and-frisks while only being 25% of the city’s population.
