#SayHerName: Black Women’s Stories of Police Violence and Public Silence

This book is about Kimberlé Crenshaw
In the compelling and necessary book "#SayHerName: Black Women’s Stories of Police Violence and Public Silence," released on July 18, 2023, the voices of Black women, girls, and femmes echo a haunting reality of racial injustice. Through the critical lens of Kimberlé Crenshaw's black feminist theory, this book sheds light on the often-overlooked stories of individuals like Breonna Taylor and many others who have suffered under police brutality. The narrative delves deep into the systemic issues that render Black women particularly vulnerable to state-sanctioned violence, employing a poignant blend of storytelling and ritual to not only mourn but mobilize and empower communities for change. Ideal for high school readers, this book not only educates but urges a rethinking of the narratives we accept, pushing the discourse beyond generalizations to embrace the truth that all Black lives truly matter. #SayHerName is not just a call to awareness but a rallying cry for action in the ongoing fight for racial justice.
