As the vicious spike in COVID’s case count rocks the nation, this installment of “Under the Blacklight” focuses on the off-staging of race after weeks of protests about racial injustice. We ask: What has become of the supposed reckoning with white supremacy since George Floyd’s death? After weeks of uncovering the legacies of racism, are we at the bottom of a Sisyphusian hill again in insisting that race is as newsworthy in the disproportionate deaths of African Americans to COVID as it has been in the weeks of protest over police violence? And why has it been so difficult to connect the two?   With: BARBARA ARNWINE - President and Founder of the Transformative Justice Coalition; President Emeritus of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law CAMARA PHYLLIS JONES -  Fellow, Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, Harvard; Senior Fellow, Cardiovascular Research Institute at the Morehouse School of Medicine JONATHAN METZL - Professor of Sociology and Psychiatry, Vanderbilt; Author, Dying of Whiteness: How the Politics of Racial Resentment is Killing America’s Heartland KEEANGA-YAMAHTTA TAYLOR - Assistant professor of African American studies, Princeton University; Author of Race for Profit: How Banks and the Real Estate Industry Undermined Black Homeownership Hosted by Kimberlé Crenshaw (@sandylocks)
