Freedom Readers Meeting
November 18 @ 7:00 pm
Meet to discuss the book “Tangled Up in Blue: Policing the American City“ by Rosa Brooks.
In Tangled Up in Blue, Brooks recounts her experiences inside the usually closed world of policing. From street shootings and domestic violence calls to the behind-the-scenes police work during Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential inauguration, Brooks presents a revelatory account of what it’s like inside the “blue wall of silence.” She issues an urgent call for new laws and institutions, and argues that in a nation increasingly divided by race, class, ethnicity, geography, and ideology, a truly transformative approach to policing requires us to move beyond sound bites, slogans, and stereotypes. An explosive and groundbreaking investigation, Tangled Up in Blue complicates matters rather than simplifies them, and gives pause both to those who think police can do no wrong—and those who think they can do no right.
Our discussions are open to everyone, even non-members. Please plan to join us on Zoom, just let Mimi AIkire know you want to be on the list.
