The Black Lives Matter movement has transformed the national conversation on anti-black racism in the United States. While most of the flashpoints have centered on police violence, the movement has raised its links to institutional racism and creatively confronted politicians.
The movement has links to past movements for civil rights and yet is quite unique. The injustices it tackles are similar and yet different. Navigating the history of the US and the challenges facing the Black Lives Matter movement in a new book ‘From #BlackLivesMatter to Black Liberation’.
