ANDREA RITCHIE: INVISIBLE NO MORE
"When I come across a story involving police interactions with black women, it's hard to tell whether a story took place in 1863, in 1963 or 2013." This is just one of the points you'll here in this interview with Andrea Ritchie, author of "Invisible No More: Police Violence Against Black Women and Women of Color." We discuss how Black women, Indigenous women, and women of color experience racial profiling, police brutality, and immigration enforcement from both a historical and modern lens. Andrea Ritchie is a Black lesbian immigrant, police misconduct attorney and organizer who has engaged in extensive research, writing, and advocacy around criminalization of women and lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people of color over the past two decades. She is currently Researcher in Residence on Race, Gender, Sexuality and Criminalization at the Barnard Center for Research on Women’s Social Justice Institute, and was a 2014 Senior Soros Justice Fellow.
