Queen Nzinga

Ignored in Western history, the seventeenth-century African queen Njinga was one of the most extraordinary rulers of the past. In an era dominated by men, she shattered gender roles through her political skill and military agility. After her rule was threatened in 1626 by the Portuguese, she transformed herself into a fierce slave trader and waged endless war against the colonizers.

The History of Police in America
2944

The police force was created to enforce the law, maintain social order, and act as a force for good. At least, that is the dominant narrative. But this version of history paints a different story. One where we must reckon with deep corruption, vicious racism, and scathing abuses of power.
