Capturing Violence: A Community Discussion
Aug 21

Free and open to the public.

Thursday, Aug 21 at 07:00PM

On Saturday, August 9, 2014, Raymond Wilford was maced by a Westlake Center security guard while walking to the mall. The guard had been called in to address a shirtless white man who was harassing a group of pro-Palestine demonstrators.

Photographer Alex Garland captured the event with his camera and shared his photos and video online. A few days later, the story was picked up by local media before getting the attention of national press.

Garland's video is a new entry in the canon of citizen reporting on racial violence ignored or skewed by mainstream media. It arrives alongside live streams from Ferguson, Missouri, and resonates with the on the ground struggles in Gaza that the demonstrators at Westlake were supporting when the security guard maced Wilford.

Join us for a community discussion about what happened at Westlake, and what we can do as a community beyond recognizing this events like this as unjust. Led by Charles Mudede, Christa Bell, Ijeoma Oluo, and moderated by Revered Harriet G. Walden.

Alex Garland will be present to speak about his experience documenting the event.
