We're hosting historian and activist Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor on Saturday, April 6th, 2013 at 6 pm.  Taylor is the author of the forthcoming book, Rat, Riots and Revolution: Black Housing in the 1960s (Haymarket) and is a doctoral candidate at Northwestern University.  Taylor gave an excellent speech at last year's Socialism Conference in Chicago which addressed police brutality and racism in what author Michelle Alexander has called the era of The New Jim Crow.
