About this item

The eruption of mass protests in the wake of the police murders of Mike Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, and Eric Garner in New York City have directly challenged the impunity with which officers of the law carry out violence against Black people and in the process has punctured the illusion of a postracial America. With its slogan of Black Lives Matter” this burgeoning 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 argues that the persistence of structural problems such as mass incarceration and Black unemployment have created a context in which this new struggle against police violence holds the potential to reignite a broader push for Black liberation.
