The Case for Community Policing: Lecture by Dave Cazeau

Wednesday, July 26, 2017

A Century of Dissent at Hunter East Harlem Gallery is thrilled to host THE CASE FOR COMMUNITY POLICING, a lecture by Dave Cazeau, Phd Candidate at the Graduate Center, CUNY. 

The police department in the United States has historically represented the most oppressive aspects of the country, demonstrated through its treatment of African American and black citizens. The historical approach to law enforcement has been informed by a perspective provided by the wealthier class, which largely sought to maintain their status of privilege in society at the expense of the poor minorities in the country dating back to the antebellum era. Looking at the organization of the police department (PD) through institutional theory, we see that the legitimacy that the organization sought came from the wealthier class, who historically informed and supported local police agendas. Given the current climate, where police reform is a more popularized initiative, community policing, a more socially inclusive approach to law enforcement is explored and suggested for a redefinition of the legitimacy sought by PDs, a legitimacy that will be given its social context in a country where the racial and ethnic demographics are changing.

Founded in 1973, the Nuyorican Poets Cafe began as a living room salon in the East Village apartment of writer and poet Miguel Algarin along with other playwrights, poets, and musicians of color whose work was not accepted by the mainstream academic, entertainment or publishing industries. Since then, Nuyorican Poets Cafe has served as a home for groundbreaking works of poetry, music, theater and visual arts with weekly events for the creative and curious.

For the event at HEHG, Nuyorican Poets Cafe has invited some of their poets to perform written works followed by an open-mic slam session, open to anyone interested in the art form.

Performers:
Advocate of Wordz
Shanelle Gabriel
Craig "muMs" Grant
Jaime Lee Lewis
