Introduction

Black men make up only 6% of the US population.

So how is it possible that 50% of all homicide victims are Black men?

Jill Leovy spent over two decades as a reporter and crime correspondent for the Los Angeles times, during which she witnessed not only the 'homicide epidemic' sweeping through the city, but also discovered that these crimes were poorly documented.

In this bestselling 2015 book, Leovy explores the problems in America's approach to inner city crime, and how it disproportionately impacts the most vulnerable communities.
