Additional Information

In 1991, Latasha Harlins, a 15-year-old African American girl, was shot in the head and killed at her local L.A. grocery store. Her death, which happened just 13 days after the Rodney King beating, garnered little attention. Black girls continue to be the targets of widespread violence with minimal accountability systems in place.

Historian Brenda Stevenson and legal scholar Kimberlé Crenshaw, both UCLA professors, discuss how this case illuminates the vulnerability of black girls and how communities can serve and protect them.

This program is part of the Hammer's Bureau of Feminism initiative.
