Using Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor’s chapter “Black Faces in High Places,” “the Master’s Tools,” and “In Defense of Black Rage” to inform your thoughts, why has Black formal political leadership largely been unable to relieve the structural inequalities Black people experience that lead to day-to-day struggles and many falling within the socially constructed net of criminality. In answering this question you are to use a city with existing Black leadership as evidence to support your thoughts as well as provide a credible-source link to a story you are using to support your claims (i.e. Atlanta, Baltimore, etc–you may also use Aldermen of particular districts and/or congressmen/women and senators, i.e. Antonio French of Ferguson, Sheila Jackson Lee, Kamala Harris).
This will require you to be critical as you pay attention to policy decisions and your thoughts on the matter at the same time.
