Title:Up against Walls: A Transnational Dialogue on Black Women, Health and the Prison System from Texas to Brazil
Abstract:Session is conducted in Portuguese and English. Panel discusses patterns of violence within the penitentiary systems in both Texas and Brazil; the panelists are Andreia Beatriz dos Santos, Hamilton Borges dos Santos, Christen A. Smith, with Matt Richardson acting as panelist and discussion moderator. After introductions, the panel begins with short presentations from each panelist on their work advocating for women in the penitentiary system. Panelists detail how the prison systems in both the U.S. and Brazil have been used as a tool for enacting racialized violence against black individuals and to maintain systems of racial oppression within society.
