Summary, etc.:
Black Lives Matter was born in July 2013 after a jury exonerated the killer of an unarmed black youth named Trayvon Martin. Since that time it has become known as a formidable, often controversial, civil rights movement that seeks equality and fair treatment of black citizens by law enforcement and by society as a whole.
This book explores the Black Lives Matter movement that was launched in 2013 to address civil rights issues against African American citizens, and its appeal for equality and fair treatment of black citizens by law enforcement and by society as a whole. It covers the divide between black citizens and the police, the formation of the movement, its detractors, law enforcement accountability, and improving policing and strengthening relationships.
