In The 400-Year Holocaust, Dante King examines the legal history of anti-Blackness and whiteness in the United States from the colonial era to its impact on present-day America. It centers anti-Blackness as the core tenet of "racism" in white America and amplifies its relationship to the inherent "value" of whiteness. The text repositions and critically examines four core white American economic, moral, socio-cultural and ideological institutions: human sex trafficking, rape, pedophilia and violence (murder). 

In this lecture and book signing, King presents the research that shaped the concepts in the book and engages audience members in discussion. Books will be available for purchase at a reception following the program. This is a live-streamed event.
