I just wanted him to stop beating me. I just wanted to live.
After a violent act that leaves their community and, ultimately, the country divided, Rashad and Quinn – one Black, one White – face the truth that racism and prejudice are all around us. And there’s a future at stake, a future where no one will have to deal with police brutality. They just have to risk everything they’ve ever known to speak out.
This edition includes evocative black and white illustrations from Akhran Girmay.
