Summary
"This volume describes the history of police brutality in New York City since the 1940s (when the city experienced a massive wave of migration of African Americans from the South and immigration from the Caribbean) and the black community's and activist groups' struggle to resist the brutality, including the role of religious communities, as well as the resistance by police and their allies to altering the power dynamics between people of color and law enforcement." --
