Join the Centre for Research and Innovation for Black Survivors of Homicide Victims (The CRIB) for Season 5 of 30@8:30. This season’s theme is Strange Fruit: Addressing the Violent Erasure of Black Bodies. 

Episode 1: Policing Black Bodies, with special guest Camisha Sibblis

Camisha Sibblis’ research is part of a broader effort across various disciplines (e.g. history, humanities, equity studies, philosophy, psychology, and education) to study identity, oppression and anti-oppressive alternatives. Her research uses spaciotemporal and critical race theories to focus on the anti-Black racism, the ubiquity of carcerality in Black life, and the politics of intersectional identity.

Her most recent work explores how excluded Black youth are constructed in the education system and how carceral experiences within schooling effect identity formation. Furthermore, her work traces the manner in which different spaces throughout history have constructed the Black body as abject and have functioned as regulating sites of violence – thereby contributing to anti-Black racism as a theoretical framework.

30@8:30 is a weekly Instagram Live show where The CRIB’s Founding Director Dr. Tanya L. Sharpe facilitates 30-minute candid conversations with interdisciplinary scholars and community service providers about structural inequities, homicide, trauma, and victimization that disproportionately impact some of our most vulnerable populations.

The CRIB is a multidisciplinary initiative designed to advance research, policy and practice FOR and WITH Black survivors of homicide victims across our global communities. The CRIB is grounded in a principle commitment to adopt culturally responsive approaches that create sustainable opportunities for Black communities to thrive in the face of adverse and traumatic tragedy as a result of experiences with homicide violence.
