Black Lives Matter protests Heather Mac Donald's talk at Claremont McKenna College on April 6th, 2017. All entrances/exits were blocked by protesters. Those interested in hearing the lecture were not allowed in. (Usually these lectures are open to the public.) The event organizers moved the podium out of the view of the venue's windows, and Mac Donald delivered her talk early via livestream to a largely empty room. Protesters are seen shouting at the windows attempting to drown out Mac Donald's talk at (0:21). A member of the conservative newspaper on campus, the Claremont Independent, is blocked by protesters at (2:09).
Heather Mac Donald is a Fellow at the Manhattan Institute. She has written extensively on higher education, immigration, policing, homelessness and homeless advocacy, criminal-justice reform, and race relations. Mac Donald's newest book, The War on Cops (2016), warns that raced-based attacks on the criminal-justice system, from the White House on down, are eroding the authority of law and putting lives at risk.
