You Can't Stop the Revolution Community Disorder and Social Ties in Post-Ferguson America
Andrea S. Boyles, "You Can't Stop the Revolution: Community Disorder and Social Ties in Post-Ferguson America"
English | ISBN: 0520298322 | 2019 | 240 pages | EPUB | 567 KB
You Can't Stop the Revolution is a vivid participant ethnography conducted from inside of Ferguson protests as the Black Lives Matter movement catapulted onto the global stage. Sociologist Andrea S. Boyles offers an everyday montage of protests, social ties, and empowerment that coalesced to safeguard black lives while igniting unprecedented twenty-first‑century resistance. Focusing on neighborhood crime prevention and contentious black citizen-police interactions in the context of preserving black lives, this book examines how black citizens work to combat disorder, crime, and police conflict. Boyles offers an insider's analysis of cities like Ferguson, where a climate of indifference leaves black neighborhoods vulnerable to conflict, where black lives are seemingly expendable, and where black citizens are held responsible for their own oppression.
