School Library Journal Review

Gr 6 Up-This documentary offers different perspectives on race and police violence. Members of the African American and Latino communities discuss recent incidents involving the police from their perspectives. Law enforcement's point of view is also offered. The film is conveniently divided into segments, depending on viewpoint and incident. For many, "the talk" is about survival in their communities and cultures, and this program can help introduce this topic to those who may not have been exposed to living life "in a war zone," as some of the commentators here have described their own situations. Incidents covered include the Tamir Rice shooting in Cleveland; the death of Oscar Ramirez in Los Angeles; the Michael Brown shooting in Ferguson, MO; and the Rev. Catherine Brown incident in Chicago. While it would have been insightful to provide more of the police perspective, this documentary does well in explaining a subject that can be hard to address and introducing it to viewers who may have never encountered it before. VERDICT A valuable resource for middle and high school libraries where race and police incursions are a hot issue or collections that would like to present a deeper understanding of these themes.-Kristin Anderson, Bloomingdale Public Library, IL © Copyright 2017.
