Summary, etc.: As a teenager, Moore was tall and awkward and constantly bullied for being gay. And one afternoon three boys from his neighborhood doused him with gasoline and tried lighting a match. What happens to the black boys who come of age in neglected, poor, heavily policed, and economically desperate cities that the War on Drugs and mass incarceration have created? It wasn't until Darnell was pushed into the spotlight at a Newark rally after the murder of a young queer woman that he became a leading organizer with Black Lives Matter, a movement that recognized him and insisted that his life mattered. Here Moore gives voice to the rich, varied experiences of all those who survive on the edges of the margins. -- adapted from publisher info.
