Reviews

"Anne Pollock offers a model and method for situating everyday forms of antiblackness within a larger machinery of death-making that--whether it grinds people down slowly or extinguishes them swiftly--counts on our inability to connect the dots. Riveting, infuriating, and essential, Sickening reminds us that neither statistics nor structural analysis will save us, and all those committed to social change must heed the stories we tell (and are told) about racism and inequity if we are to get free."--Ruha Benjamin, author of Race After Technology
