The African diaspora have been subjected to oppression for decades since the end of the transatlantic slave trade. In recent times this oppression has been most visible in the form of live killing and murder executed by law enforcement officers. However, the extent of the problems that face people of colour in the West are not limited to police brutality; the challenges are much broader spanning across every area of society: from politics and law to health and housing to economics and entrainment. Not only are the challenges wide-ranging, they are often interconnected.
Following the death of George Floyd and the rise of the Black Lives Matter movement, for the first-time people from all walks of life in the West stood up together to push back against racial oppression. This book provides an overview of the key challenges facing the African Diaspora, how things can be improved, and how they are related.
