Pulled over in a traffic stop and beaten by the side of the road. Placed in a banned chokehold by a New York City police officer. Violently taken into police custody, never to come out alive. Shot first, questions asked later. The stories and images that immediately leap to mind are those of black men. But as Andrea Ritchie reveals in INVISIBLE NO MORE, these are also the stories of black women and women of color. It is not only a book about the problem, it is a book about resistance to police violence against women of color.
