A new book, "Invisible No More: Police Violence Against Black Women and Women of Color" looks at the issue of police violence against women of color. As police violence against black men and men of color has come into the national spotlight, we seldom hear how women of color are affected by police violence and sexual abuse.

Here & Now's Meghna Chakrabarti talks with the author, Andrea Ritchie (@dreanyc123).

This segment aired on December 6, 2017.
