No Selves To Defend Anthology: A Legacy of Criminalizing Women of Color for Self Defense
"I was motivated to create the ‘No Selves to Defend Anthology‘ as a fundraising tool and also as an educational and consciousness-raising one. The anthology locates Marissa’s [Alexander] case within a historical context that criminalizes and punishes women (particularly of color) for self-defense.” - Mariame Kaba
No Selves To Defend also features Yvonne Wanrow (Colville) with the contribution by Andrea Smith.
The publication is available today for $50 from the Free Marissa Alexander online store: http://www.zibbet.com/FreeMarissaAlexander/artwork?artworkId=2318730
