At the age of thirty-four, Loretta Prater’s son was killed by police officers in Tennessee. In Excessive Use of Force: One Mother’s Struggle against Police Brutality and Misconduct, Prater places the death of her son into the larger conversation about police brutality against African American men. With a blend of narrative and research, Prater weaves her own experience into her analysis of current research and numerous other case studies to more fully examine the crisis of police brutality and misconduct in America. Sponsored by Women & Gender Studies.
