Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Clearly written sentences and an even-handed presentation of the facts characterize this important volume in the CORE Library Guide to Racism in America series (6 titles), which helpfully explores and contextualizes the surge in protests against police brutality over the past several years. Harris opens with an account of the death of George Floyd before moving on to the protests that ensued and other instances of state violence against Black people that fueled protesters' anger. Later chapters cover some of the changes state and local governments have proposed, and Harris is careful to emphasize that this work is ongoing: "Activists and concerned officials will continue to push for improvements as long as inequalities exist." Statistics, graphs, large photos, and primary-source quotes help emphasize her overall point, but she keeps the tone cool, inviting readers to think critically about those facts with chapter-ending question prompts. This is a hot-button topic that inspires a lot of strong feelings, and this volume is admirable in its neutral tone, its adherence to facts, and its avoidance of bothsidesism."
