From #BlackLivesMatter to Black Liberation
By Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor
On Sunday, July 19 at 6pm we’ll be discussing Chapter 2 and 3.
**If you don’t have time to finish all of it or any of it – come anyway! We’ll have a good discussion and your views are appreciated!**
The eruption of mass protests in the wake of the police murders of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri and Eric Garner in New York City have challenged the impunity with which officers of the law carry out violence against Black people and the illusion of a postracial America. The Black Lives Matter movement has awakened a new generation of activists.
In this stirring and insightful analysis, activist and scholar Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor surveys the historical and contemporary ravages of racism and persistence of structural inequality such as mass incarceration and Black unemployment. In this context, she argues that this new struggle against police violence holds the potential to reignite a broader push for Black liberation.
