About INCITE! And Color of Violence:

 INCITE! Women of Color Against Violence was born in 2000, when more than two thousand dedicated activists from diverse communities came together to end the war being waged on women of color in the US and around the world. Now the largest multiracial, grassroots, feminist organization in the United States, INCITE! boasts chapters in more than 20 cities. Color of Violence: The INCITE! Anthology presents the fierce and vital writing of 32 of these visionaries, who not only shift the focus from domestic violence and sexual assault, but also map innovative strategies of movement building and resistance used by women of color around the world. At a time of heightened state surveillance and repression of people of color, Color of Violence: The INCITE! Anthologyis an essential intervention.” For more information on INCITE! visit http://www.incite-national.org/index.php?s=37, and this review INCITE! and Color of Violence can be found on http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/342834.Color_of_Violence.
