Activist Tamika Mallory declared a State of Emergency in her viral speech at a Minneapolis Press conference following the May 25, 2020 murder of George Floyd. The speech was called “the speech of a generation” by ABC News.
Mallory’s new book, STATE OF EMERGENCY: How We Win in the Country We Built, includes Forewords by Angela Davis and Cardi B, and a Prologue on the events of January 6, 2021. Having led several Black Lives Matter movements across the country, she writes that the issues of police reform and state violence will not be easily answered by protest, popular sentiment, or the recent election. She offers solutions that are credible, earned, and genuine.
