In Policing Black Bodies: How Black Lives Are Surveilled and How to Work for Change, Angela J. Hattery and Earl Smith make a compelling case that the issue goes far beyond the brutal headline stories of Trayvon Martin and Freddie Gray. Hattery and Smith connect the regulation of African American people in many settings--including the public education system and the criminal justice system--into a powerful narrative about the ways African Americans are policed. The book discusses the school-to-prison pipeline; mass incarceration and the prison boom; unique ways black women and trans people are treated; wrongful convictions and the challenges of exoneration, and more. Sponsored by Women and Gender Studies and African and African American Studies.
