Synopsis

News cycles today are frequently dominated by reports of disturbing and violent police encounters. While public awareness of police violence is growing, individual black men-including Eric Garner, Michael Brown, Philando Castile, and Freddie Gray-have been the focus of these media-driven narratives. Black women and women of color-including Sandra Antor, Sandra Bland, Rekia Boyd, Rosann Miller, and Alesia Thomas-are being racially profiled, targeted for sexual assault, and killed by police, but their stories have remained largely untold. Invisible No More reveals a movement that has been building largely in the shadows of mainstream campaigns for racial justice and police accountability. Informed by more than twenty years of research and advocacy, civil rights attorney and activist Andrea Ritchie shows how women's experiences with law enforcement are uniquely influenced by race, gender, gender identity, sexuality, class, and ability.
