'Violence Against Black Bodies' argues that black deaths at the hands of police are just one form of violence that black and brown people face daily in the western world. Through the voices of scholars from different academic disciplines, this text gives readers an opportunity to put the cases together and see that violent deaths in police custody are just one tentacle of the racial order - a hierarchy which is designed to produce trauma and discrimination according to one's perceived race-ethnicity.
