Lecture by SA Smythe, PhD
Dr. Smythe is a poet, translator, and assistant professor in the Departments of Gender Studies and African American Studies at UCLA


In this lecture during "Abolition May," a month-long series of actions at campuses across
Turtle Island, Smythe will discuss the growing national campaign to build a university
system free of policing as integral to the commitments we must hold as learners,
educators, and as people committed to this unprecedented struggle against carceral
violence. Smythe will draw on lessons learned from Black studies and ask not only "what
do we owe to each other," but who is "we" in the principled march towards the shared
horizon of abolition.

Hosted by UCM Abolition Collective + Co-Sponsors:
Departments of Sociology, History & Critical Race and Ethnic Studies, Literature and Languages, and
Global Arts, Media, and Writing Studies
