Mass Surveillance of Black Bodies & Anti-Racist Data-Sharing: An Interview with Tawana Petty
Tawana Petty is a mother, social justice organizer, youth advocate, poet, and author. She is intricately involved in water rights advocacy, data, digital privacy rights education, racial justice, and equity work. She is the National Organizing Director at Data 4 Black Lives (D4BL), and director of Petty Propolis, a Black woman-led artist incubator primarily focused on cultivating visionary resistance through poetry, literacy and literary workshops, anti-racism facilitation, and social justice initiatives. Podcast Host Miriam Castro and Ms. Petty discuss how the push for biometric mass surveillance in Tawana’s home city of Detroit has contributed to the dehumanization of Black bodies during COVID-19. Tawana shares with Miriam the process all allies must take from allyship to co-liberation to foster real social justice and what steps organizations can make to create anti-racist data-sharing efforts.
