George Floyd. Breonna Taylor. Eric Garner. Sandra Bland. Tamir Rice.
So many others for so many years. In 2010 police killed over a thousand people in the U.S. Black people are 3x more likely to be killed by police than white people. 99% of killings by police from 2013 – 2019 have not resulted in officers being charged with a crime. The names of the murdered will not be forgotten. We call on poets, writers, and artists to submit work for an anthology that addresses the continuing problem of police violence in this country and around the world.
