Friday, September 21, 2012
By:Lumumba Akinwole-Bandele & Dr. Khalilah L. Brown-Dean
LDF's Senior Community Advocate, Lumumba Akinwole-Bandele, and Dr. Khalilah L. Brown-Dean reflect on the first anniversary of Troy Davis' execution and the continuing fight against the death penalty.
The public’s response to Troy Davis’s plight reflects a persistent and troubling pattern among communities of color: intense organizing in response to overt instances of racial injustice with little attention to building a community-based infrastructure that charts more preventive strategies.
