Praise for Carving Out a Humanity
"Penetrating essays on race and social stratification within policing and the law, in honor of pioneering scholar Derrick Bell. . . . Many powerfully acknowledge the persistence of structural racism and offer in-depth discussion regarding particular aspects of the law's effect on marginalized communities, resonant in an era of White supremacy's bid for mainstream acceptance."
