The Making of Black Lives Matter

A Brief History of an Idea

Christopher J. Lebron

  • Presents a concise and accessible history of the rhetoric and activism that has laid the foundation for the modern #BlackLivesMatter movement
  • Argues for a renewed focus on the idea of equal standing in society for African Americans, rather than the current focus on policing and laws
  • Draws from a number of fields, including African American studies, philosophy, and political science to trace the intellectual foundations of contemporary protest strategy
