Underlining patterns of racism and police brutality, as well as the frightening militarization of college campus police, IN HIS OWN HOME recounts the shooting of unarmed, disabled Ghanaian doctoral student Kofi Adu-Brempong, whose life was forever changed when heavily armed campus police broke into his University of Florida apartment and, within a minute of entry, shot him in the face. Yet the officer who shot him, who had previously been caught throwing eggs at residents of a Black neighborhood, was neither suspended nor fired. Rather, the school’s administration filed charges against Adu-Brempong, which later were dropped after students and community members protested.
