Marc Lamont Hill Nobody

Nobody: Casualties of America’s War on the Vulnerable, from Ferguson to Flint and Beyond was published on Jul 26, 2016. Marc carefully considers a string of high-profile deaths in America—Sandra Bland, Freddie Gray, Michael Brown, Eric Garner, Trayvon Martin, and others—and incidents of gross negligence by the government, such as the water crisis in Flint, Michigan. He digs underneath these events to uncover patterns and policies of authority that allow some citizens to become disempowered, disenfranchised, poor, uneducated, exploited, vulnerable, and disposable.

Marc Lamont Hill Except For Palestine
