This presentation proposes that African-Americans should develop a standard approach to the race-based police stop as part of an effort to minimize African-American exposure to police violence. However, I argue that rather than opting for absolute deference to police authority, African-Americans should routinely take concrete steps in the context of the stop in pursuit of police accountability.
Part of a 6-part series that will address recent and past incidents of police violence against African-Americans, as well as the roots of institutional racial violence, its contemporary manifestations and anti-racist protests.
