This is a MUST READ!! Beth Elaine Richie's new book, "ARRESTED JUSTICE BLACK WOMEN, VIOLENCE AND AMERICA'S PRISON NATION" is now out!!
The books description states: The threat of violence to Black women has never been more serious, demonstrating how conservative legal, social, political and economic policies have impacted activism in the US-based movement to end violence against women. Richie argues that Black women face particular peril because of the ways that race and culture have not figured centrally enough in the analysis of the causes and consequences of gender violence. As a result, the extent of physical, sexual and other forms of violence in the lives of Black women, the various forms it takes, and the contexts within which it occurs are minimized—at best—and frequently ignored.
