Invisible No More: Police Violence Against Black Women and Women of Color
Written by In Our Names Network co-founder Andrea J. Ritchie, Invisible No More: Police Violence Against Black Women and Women of Color (Beacon Press 2017) is a timely examination of how Black women, Indigenous women, and women, queer and trans people of color experience racial profiling, the violence of policing, the absence of protection, and immigration enforcement. Placing stories of individual women—such as Sandra Bland, Rekia Boyd, Dajerria Becton, Monica Jones, and Mya Hall—in the broader context of the twin epidemics of police violence and mass incarceration, it documents the evolution of movements centering women, queer and trans people’s experiences of policing and demands a radical rethinking of our visions of safety—and the means we devote to achieving it.
