Gerald Horne: The History of Police in the U.S. & Connections to Slavery


Gerald Horne, whose book The Dawning of the Apocalypse: The Roots of Slavery, White Supremacy, Settler Colonialism, and Capitalism in the Long Sixteenth Century is just out, talks to Margaret Prescod, host of Sojourner Truth Radio, about the legacy of policing in the U.S. How did it start? What impact did its history have on what’s happening in policing today? And what is the inter-relationship between the legacy of slavery and genocide against Indigenous people, policing and mass incarceration practices of today?
