Examining Sustainability at Barnard

Race After Technology

Race After Technology: Abolitionist Tools for the New Jim Code by Ruha Benjamin examines the legacy of institutional racism in the United States as it currently manifests in technology. She draws a connection from the Jim Crow era to the ways in which modern technology is used for racist surveillance, profiling, and other methods that are more covert than the racism of the Jim Crow era, but still result in the same harm for Black people and other people of color. Benjamin pays special attention to the ways in which race and racism are integrated into technology in our everyday lives.
