We are excited to you bring you a great book from a wonderful Brotha!!!
This Is Not For You tells the story of activist and photographer Richard Brown, a Black Portlander who has spent decades working to bridge the divide between police and the Black community. His memoir brings readers with him into the streets with fellow activists, into squad cars with the rank-and-file, and to regular meetings with mayors and police chiefs. There are very few people doing the kind of work Richard Brown has done. And that, as he sees it, is a big problem.
Over fifty percent of royalties earned on this book will be donated to organizations working on behalf of Black Portlanders.
