From #BlackLivesMatter to Black Liberation

Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor

Overview

Systematic brutality against Black people has always been part of the fabric of America. But in the past decade, mobile phones have captured more evidence of police officers killing Black people. These images sparked protests and civil rights activism on a scale the country hadn't experienced in decades.

In this book, scholar and activist Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor details the contextual history of systemic racism and its contemporary outcomes. She presents clear links between race-based policy – even when it purports to be colorblind – and mass incarceration, poverty, and militaristic policing of communities of color.

Taylor is a professor in the African-American Studies department at Princeton University. She's an activist, author of Race for Profit, and editor of the anthology How We Get Free.

Favorite Quote

"There are any number of conditions to protest in Black communities, but police violence has consistently sparked Black rage because it exemplifies the compromised citizenship of African Americans."
