Occupied Territory: Policing Black Chicago from Red Summer to Black Power
History professor and author Simon Balto discusses his recently published book, Occupied Territory: Policing Black Chicago From Red Summer to Black Power. In the book, Balto explores the deeper origins and historical evolution of a toxic system of radicalized policing in Black Chicago. In so doing, he offers critical context for understanding modern struggles over police violence, surveillance, harassment, and neglect, and explains how modern mass incarceration emerged as a fully formed machine of profoundly anti-Black subjugation.
