Prof. Shabazz on Spatializing Blackness thru Architectures of Incarceration

Explores how carceral power and the techniques of containment were woven into the quotidian geographies of poor and working class Black people on Chicago’s South Side. Through an examination of housing, policing, and the production of masculinity, Shabazz demonstrates how the explosion of Black incarceration rates in the latter 20th century were enabled by the geography of incarceration at the beginning of the century.
