Writer, Creator, Consultant

Amy Nickerson is an author, television and film content creator, lecturer, educational consultant, and diversity/inclusion/anti-racism advocate. Her first book How Do You See Us?, released at the end of 2019, debuted as an Amazon bestseller under the categories of Discrimination and Constitutional Law. Amy, who has been married 30 years to husband Hardy, a former NFL All-Pro linebacker and former NFL and college coach, created the personal narrative to detail and analyze what she and her family have witnessed and personally experienced related to problematic issues concerning law enforcement. She has shared her perspective and innermost feelings about race in America and how and why tensions continue to escalate between African-Americans and police officers, as well as ordinary white citizens insistent on policing Black people. 

  • How Do You See Us? is a personal narrative written by Amy Nickerson, M.A.  detailing and analyzing what she and her family have seen and experienced as it relates to issues of law enforcement. 


    This is not Black vs. Blue.  This isn’t about sides – the black side or the blue side.  This is not an attack on the institution of law enforcement. Nor is it a rebuke of every white law enforcement officer, and the men and women who serve their communities.   


    As Amy states in her book, "This is about my perspective, my innermost feelings about how I am viewed as a Black person in America, why I feel vulnerable around police officers, and how it got this way."
