A Brief History of an Idea, Updated Edition

Christopher J. Lebron

  • This updated edition includes a new introduction that examines the movement's core ideas since 2017, as well as a new chapter on the ideas and importance of Angela Davis and Amiri Baraka
  • 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
