NO DOUBT: THE MURDER(S) OF OSCAR GRANT

‘No Doubt’ … is no doubt an essential read. It is brilliant, fantastically well-written, compelling, engaging and absolutely infuriating in its detail and honesty. ‘No Doubt’ … leaves no doubt as to why Oscar Grant and so many like him are killed by the police or that these killings are indeed state-sponsored murders.”
— Jared A. Ball, Associate Professor of Media Studies at Bowie State University; author: 'I Mix What I Like'; Co-Editor: 'A Lie of Reinvention: Correcting Manning Marable’s Malcolm X.'

‘No Doubt’ tells the horrifying tale of how Oscar Grant was murdered once on a New Year’s subway platform before hundreds of witnesses, and a second time in media and the courts to minimize or prevent the punishment of his killer and to preserve the larger principle of police impunity when it comes to killing young Black men. After covering nearly every day of the killer’s trial proceedings and researching transcripts of pre-trial proceedings, veteran reporter Thandisizwe Chimurenga proves she can tell a good story as well and isn’t afraid of where it leads. Go see ‘Fruitvale Station’ if you need an airbrushed, slightly fictionalized version of Oscar Grant’s last day on earth. But you’ll have to read “No Doubt” to get the story of his death, and to trace the steps of the official dance which all-but-guarantees the double murder of Oscar Grant will happen again and again and again.”
— Bruce Dixon, Co-Founder and Managing Editor, The Black Agenda Report

In the wake of Trayvon Martin’s murder and George Zimmerman’s acquittal, ‘No Doubt: The Murder(s) of Oscar Grant’ is a necessary book. Thandisizwe Chimurenga dissects the defense that was mounted for Grant’s killer and shows how the legal supports for murders of young Black and Latino people are constructed. In tracing each step in the successful effort to keep Grant’s killer from being convicted of murder, she provides a stunning analysis of how white supremacy is reinforced and planted ever deeper in U.S. society and government. This is crucial knowledge for anyone who works to replace racism with justice.”

This project pokes and probes in the most uncomfortable ways, that dance with truth. Support this work!”
