Racial Capitalism, Opioids and the Drug War in the Age of Trump

Socialism 2019

July 04, 2019

This talk will speak to a larger debate about the current opioid crisis and its relationship to the successive wars on drugs in the United States. Core to my approach is thinking about racial capitalism as a critical framework for understanding both the deregulation of Big Pharma and our ongoing punishment campaigns about drugs and gangs.

Save the date! Socialism 2020 will be July 2-5, 2020 in Chicago. Visit socialismconference.org for updates.
