We Still Here: Pandemic, Policing, Protest, and Possibility

by Marc Lamont Hill - £9.99  Haymarket Books (2020)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781642594539 | ISBN 10: 1642594539

In the midst of loss and death and suffering, our charge is to figure out what freedom really means - and how we take steps to get there.
 
"In the United States, being poor and Black makes you more likely to get sick. Being poor, Black, and sick makes you more likely to die. Your proximity to death makes you disposable."
 
The uprising of 2020 marked a new phase in the unfolding Movement for Black Lives. The brutal killings of Ahmaud Arbery, George Floyd, and Breonna Taylor, and countless other injustices large and small, were the match that lit the spark of the largest protest movement in US history, a historic uprising against racism and the politics of disposability that the Covid-19 pandemic lays bare.
 
In this urgent and incisive collection of new interviews bookended by two new essays, Marc Lamont Hill critically examines the "pre-existing conditions" that have led us to this moment of crisis and upheaval, guiding us through both the perils and possibilities, and helping us imagine an abolitionist future.
