Professor Beth Richie Quoted in HuffPost

HuffPost quotes Beth Richie, UIC professor and head of criminology, law, and justice, in an article on black female victims of domestic violence being hesitant to notify police about their attackers. “There is a feeling in black communities that the only time violence against black women is taken seriously is when it can be used to feed the arrest and detention of a black man,” said Richie, who is also a professor of African American studies, and gender and women’s studies.
