Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
Frank Chapman, activist and author, Field Organizer for the Chicago Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression (CAARPR) was invited to speak to the Northside Friends following their Sunday service on issues of police violence, the movement for civilian control over policing in Chicago and the unique political moment; grass roots organizing having forced the indictment, trial and conviction of CPD officer Jason Van Dyke for the murder of Laquan McDonald.

He speaks of what brought him into a life long fight for justice against white supremacy and structural racism in the United States, embodied in the impunity with which police brutalize and murder African-Americans, Latinos and poor people.

From his own experience he speaks of what a movement, "the people", can accomplish. And what it means in this moment when for the first time a white policeman has been convicted of second degree murder and sixteen counts of aggravated assault with a firearm, while on duty, for what in deed was the execution of a black child and that, but for the video and its release to the public 400 some days following the shooting, officials maintained was "justified".

Stop Police Crimes, SPC, is a project of Chicago Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression (CAARPR).

Frank's upcoming book, A Marxist-Leninist Perspective on the Struggle for Socialism and Black Liberation., examines the history of Black People organizing and focuses on the mass movements that are going on right now related to Black Liberation, CPAC, and the recent murder trial of Jason Van Dyke, the former Chicago cop that killed Laquan McDonald.
