From #BlackLivesMatter to Black Liberation

From #BlackLivesMatter to Black Liberation

by Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor

Ever since Ferguson, political discourse in America has changed completely. Since then, police murders of Black people have not gone unnoticed in the public eye, and the violence of racism can no longer be ignored or brushed aside with the illusion of a postracial society. The Black Lives Matter movement has risen up and made major waves, changing our country forever for the better. This book, by activist and scholar Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor, looks at history and current events to pinpoint the damage of systemic racism through the lens of today's fight against police violence. Read this to put today's news in historical context and to feel connected to a bigger picture movement that is making a major impact on the world today.
