"Arrest Johannes Mehserle." Oakland Wall Art by Golden State Warriors

  

"It was a triple murder."

Oscar Grant was murdered for the first time on Jan. 1, 2009, by Johannes Mehserle. 

He would be murdered by the media and the legal system shortly thereafter.

No Doubt: The Murder(s) of Oscar Grant, by Thandisizwe Chimurenga, connects the

systematic, state-sanctioned violence against young Black males in the United States

through the lens of Oscar Grant’s murder.

‘No Doubt’ is the chilling and compelling story of the 2009 murder of 22-year-old Oscar Grant by a BART police officer. It is also the story of the ways in which racism and white privilege infect America’s criminal justice system, media and society, and encourage, perpetuate, and justify the oppression and devaluing of the lives of people of color. A breath-taking read that will break your heart, stimulate your rage and, hopefully, motivate you to take action.”
