The Context of White Supremacy welcomes Dr. Tyler D. Parry. A historian at the University of Nevada Las Vegas, Dr. Parry is an expert on colonization of the Americas, the African diaspora, and the historical memory of slavery in the United States. Even though his phenotypical features confused Gus and several listeners, Dr. Parry is classified as White - and married to a black female. We'll discuss his fascinating research on White Supremacists use of dogs to terrorize and control black bodies. He co-authored the report, Slave Hounds and Abolition in the Americas. The project explores how breeding dogs to track and maul black people became booming businesses throughout the world during slavery. He contextualizes the historical use of dogs to patrol slave plantations with the current use of canine police units, which often serves the same purpose - control of black bodies. Dr. Parry said he's currently working on a project to examine the book and film White Dog - which we're currently reading in our book club. #WhiteMansBestFriend INVEST in The COWS – Cash App:$TheCOWS CALL IN NUMBER: 720.716.7300 CODE 564943#
