Yale professor of history Elizabeth Hinton revisits the long history of Black rebellion in America on Fire: The Untold History of Police Violence and Black Rebellion Since the 1960s, a comprehensive look at how the 2020 national reckoning with systemic racism in the U.S. was born out of decades of racial justice work that began in the 1960s. By offering a crucial reframing of what were long classified as “race riots” instead as political rebellion, Hinton points to how Black resistance to injustice is an integral part of not only America’s past and present, but also its future.
