Who owns public space? Although segregation legally ended in 1964 with the passing of the Civil Rights Act, informal policing of public spaces has continued. Recent viral videos where people of color are confronted in public spaces, are only half the story. From parks, to pools, to neighborhoods, to college campuses, people of color are being policed from public spaces. The podcast takes a deep historical dive to uncover past instances of citizen policing, and seeks to uncover the motivations behind more recent events.
