"On July 17, 2014, a forty-three-year-old black man died in New York City after a police officer put him in what has been described as a chokehold during an arrest for selling loosies, or single cigarettes. The final moments of his life were captured on video and seen by millions, sparking an international series of protests that built into the transformative Black Lives Matter movement. Matt Taibbi ... tells the full story of the man who inspired a movement - neither villiain nor victim, but a fiercely proud individual determined to do the best he could for his family. Featuring ... vignettes of life on the street, this ... narrative of urban America is a ... scathing indictment of law enforcement in the twenty-first century."--Book jacket
