Product description


“There is much more to inequality and discrimination than we know, and Crump will open your eyes. Pay attention.”--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“. . . alarming yet credible account.”--Publishers Weekly

“. . . deeply disturbing account of how the justice system is used to maintain a system of inequality and justify the murder of black Americans.”--Book Riot

“Benjamin Crump's work - his research, his voice, his fight - is paramount to the black community. Open Season must occupy a dominant place in the classroom, in libraries, in the workplace, in police training programs. Crump's masterful voice and expertise of America's corrupt power structures will alter the hierarchy by which we dangerously abide.”--Patrisse Khan-Cullors, co-founder of Black Lives Matter and New York Times bestselling author of When They Call You a Terrorist

“Ben Crump offers a deft and unflinching expose on America's treatment of people of color. He charges America to live up to its status as the great “melting pot” by protecting and serving all of its citizens. His passionate voice lifts the true stories of wronged Americans off of the page and emblazoned them onto our hearts. A mouth-gaping read from one of the most steadfast champions for justice of our time.”-- Kenya Barris, creator of Black-ish

"Ben Crump is a warrior on the front lines of the war for social justice. These notes from the legal battlefield of civil rights pushes us beyond lazy presumptions of where we are as a society to the hard truths of what we have achieved and how far we still have to go.”--Reginald Hudlin, writer, director, and producer
