“This is about my perspective, my innermost feelings about how I am viewed as a Black person in America, why I feel vulnerable around police officers, and how it got this way.”

Amy Nickerson, M.A.

 

(Oakland, CA, November 11, 2019) How Do You See Us? is a personal narrative written by Amy Nickerson, M.A. detailing and analyzing what she and her family have seen and experienced as it relates to issues of law enforcement. This is not Black vs. Blue. This isn’t about sides – the black side or the blue side. This is not an attack on the overall institution of law enforcement. Nor is this a scathing rebuke of every white law enforcement officer. As Amy states in her book, “This is about my perspective, my innermost feelings about how I am viewed as a Black person in America, why I feel vulnerable around police officers, and how it got this way.” Amy Nickerson recounts numerous encounters with police officers as well as ordinary white citizens insistent on policing black people.

 

About How Do You See Us? Our Lived Realities of Being Viewed As a Threat:

This book, written by Amy Nickerson, M.A. expresses her fears that her loved ones are only one opinion or prejudgment away from tragedy.  Amy states, “I place myself in the position of the victims and feel such hopelessness and despair. Again, thinking about the saying “when they see us,” I realize that something horribly wrong occurred in every one of those tragedies, based simply on how others “saw them.” For more information please visit:
