Invisible No More: Police Violence Against Black Women and Women of Color - Andrea J. Ritchie, Angela Y. Davis

I received this book for free through LibraryThing’s Early Reviewers.

 

This was such a powerful read. Andrea Ritchie did an amazing job making the invisible visible. Women are often left out of the narrative when it comes to police brutality and mass incarceration. I love how inclusive she was of all women of color (including the much overlooked indigenous population) and their experiences. In addition, she highlights the intersections of race, class, gender, disability, sexual identity and sexual orientation extremely well, providing a well rounded analysis of the female experience.

 

Overall, this is a must read.
