Settler Colonialism, Race, and the Law

In the 1960s, global decolonization and the civil rights movement inspired hope for structural change in the United States, but more than fifty years later, racial disparities in income and wealth, education, employment, health, housing, and incarceration remain entrenched. In addition, we have seen a resurgence of overt White supremacy following the election of President Trump. This chapter considers the potential of movements like Black Lives Matter and the Standing Rock water protectors in light of the experiences of the Black Panther Party, the American Indian Movement, and other efforts at community empowerment in the “long sixties.”

Keywords:   decolonization, civil rights, poverty, incarceration, Black Lives Matter, Standing Rock, Black Panther Party, American Indian Movement, COINTELPRO, sixties
