Publisher's Summary

In our era of mass incarceration, gun violence, and Black Lives Matters, a handbook showing how racial justice and restorative justice can transform the African American experience in America.

This timely work will inform scholars and practitioners on the subjects of pervasive racial inequity and the healing offered by restorative justice practices. Addressing the intersectionality of race and the US criminal justice system, social activist Fania E. Davis explores how restorative justice has the capacity to disrupt patterns of mass incarceration through effective, equitable, and transformative approaches.

Davis highlights real restorative justice initiatives that function from a racial justice perspective; these programs are utilized in schools, justice systems, and communities, intentionally seeking to ameliorate racial disparities and systemic inequities.

She looks at initiatives that strive to address the historical harms against African Americans throughout the nation. This newest addition to the Justice and Peacebuilding series is a much needed and long overdue examination of the issue of race in America as well as a beacon of hope as we learn to work together to repair damage, change perspectives, and strive to do better.

Not a deep dive into restorative justice

It was interesting to hear more about Fania Davis and Angela Davis’s life. The book mostly focused on racism, which is important but I wish it dove a little deeper into restorative justice. It seemed to just glaze the surface of restorative justice concepts. Nonetheless it makes the important point that restorative justice needs to acknowledge race and racism, and it needs to be integrated into practices.
