We Charge Genocide

Join Professor Dayo Gore of UCSD’s Ethnic Studies Department for a discussion of the 1951 document We Charge Genocide: The Crime of Government Against the Negro People submitted by civil rights leaders to the UN Genocide Convention accusing the U.S. government of genocide against African Americans.

To build its case for Black genocide, the document cited lynching, legal discrimination, disenfranchisement in the South, police brutality, and inequalities in health and quality of life. Paul Robeson presented the document to the UN in New York.

Located in the Mary Hollis Clark Conference Center. Library contact: (619) 236-5817
