This book is a must-read for all of us." - Michelle Alexander, New York Times bestselling author of The New Jim Crow A poetic and powerful memoir about what it means to be a Black woman in America—and the co-founding of a movement that demands justice for all in the land of the free. Raised by a single mother in an impoverished neighborhood in Los Angeles, Patrisse Khan-Cullors experienced firsthand the prejudice and persecution Black Americans endure at the hands of law enforcement. For Patrisse, the most vulnerable people in the country are Black people. Deliberately and ruthlessly targeted by a criminal justice system serving a white privilege agenda, Black people are subjected to unjustifiable racial profiling and police brutality. In 2013, when Trayvon Martin’s killer went free, Patrisse’s outrage led her to co-found Black Lives Matter with Alicia Garza and Opal Tometi. Condemned as terrorists and as a threat to America, these loving women founded a hashtag that birthed the movement to demand accountability from the authorities who continually turn a blind eye to the injustices inflicted upon people of Black and Brown skin. Championing human rights in the face of violent racism, Patrisse is a survivor. She transformed her personal pain into political power, giving voice to a people suffering inequality and a movement fueled by her strength and love to tell the country—and the world—that Black Lives Matter. When They Call You a Terrorist is Patrisse Khan-Cullors and asha bandele’s reflection on humanity. It is an empowering account of survival, strength and resilience and a call to action to change the culture that declares innocent Black life expendable.

Preaching Black Lives Matter

This collection of reflections is an incisive look into that future today. It explains why preaching about race is important in the elimination of racism in the church and society, and how preaching has the ability to transform hearts.

Preaching Black Lives  Matter

Preaching Black Lives (Matter) is an anthology that asks, “What does it mean to be church where if Black lives matter?” Prophetic imagination would have us see a future in which all Christians would be free of the soul-warping belief and practice of racism. This collection of reflections is an incisive look into that future today. It explains why preaching about race is important in the elimination of racism in the church and society, and how preaching has the ability to transform hearts. While programs, protests, conferences, and laws are all important and necessary, less frequently discussed is the role of the church, specifically the Anglican Church and Episcopal Church, in ending systems of injustice. The ability to preach from the pulpit is mandatory for every person, clergy or lay, regardless of race, who has the responsibility to spread the gospel. For there’s a saying in the Black church, “If it isn’t preached from the pulpit, it isn’t important.”

The Politics of Protest

This collection provides a deep engagement with the political implication of Black Lives Matter. This book covers a broad range of topics using a variety of methods and epistemological approaches. In the twenty-first century, the killings of Black Americans have sparked a movement to end the brutality against Black bodies. In 2013, #BlackLivesMatter would become a movement-building project led by Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullors, and Opal Tometi. This movement began after the acquittal of George Zimmerman, who murdered 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. The movement has continued to fight for racial justice and has experienced a resurgence following the 2020 slayings of Ahmaud Arbery, George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Sean Reed, Tony McDade, and David McAtee among others. The continued protests raise questions about how we can end this vicious cycle and lead Blacks to a state of normalcy in the United States. In other words, how can we make any advances made by Black Lives Matter stick? The chapters in this book were originally published in the journal Politics, Groups, and Identities.

BlackLivesMatter

This thesis reviews race theories, racial formation in the United States and racist ideology in the pre- and post-Civil Rights era in order to show why the Black Lives Matter Movement is needed.

 BlackLivesMatter

Do Black Lives Matter or do All Lives Matter? That question has been the cause of many debates and conversations across America recently. The All Lives Matter response was created to criticize the Black Lives Matter Movement and operates under the assumption that the movement isn't needed in America because it is a post racial society. This thesis reviews race theories, racial formation in the United States and racist ideology in the pre- and post-Civil Rights era in order to show why the Black Lives Matter Movement is needed. It looks at the influence colorblindness has on the United States Criminal Justice System and the All Lives Matter response. Finally, this thesis explains why the Black Lives Matter Movement is important and suggest next steps that can be taken by the Black Lives Matter Movement to reach its goal of social justice for black lives.

Black Lives Matter Too  Two

In his first book, Black Lives Matter Too: My Adventures with Huckleberry Finn, author Mark Time dealt with the greatest injustice in the original Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn books - ignoring the slave's perspective and the seriousness of slavery - by re-imagining the characters Jim and Nat, primarily, and re-telling the story through Jim. Now, Mark Time's second book, Black Lives Matter Too, Two: The Death of Huckleberry Finn, addresses the second great injustice - ignoring the woman's perspective - by re-imagining the character of Aunt Polly and creating a new character to be the girl-equivalent of Tom and Huck, Miss Melissasippi Jane. The Death of Huckleberry Finn picks up where the first book left off, on a one-horse plantation in Louisiana, and follows Jim, and Tom, and Huck, and the rest of the gang, on their return home up the Mississippi River through the dark heart of slavery back to Saint Petersburg.

Eight Questions about Race

Prominent black pastor Aubrey Shines sheds light on the difficult questions raised by the racial protests in the aftermath of the killing of George Floyd, proposing a Christian response to the agenda and claims of Black Lives Matter. People of faith have been in the vanguard of civil rights for 150 years, and like all Americans of good will, they wish to be on the right side of the divisive issue of racial justice. Yet many have qualms and questions about the goals and methods espoused by Black Lives Matter, which claims to speak for all Americans of color. Is America really a racist society? Have we truly failed our African-American friends and neighbors on issues of equality and fairness? What is Black Lives Matter? Who are its leaders? What do they want? Does BLM really represent the interests of black Americans? Above all, what is the appropriate Christian response to the raging debate about race and justice in America? These and other questions are addressed with clarity, sensitivity, deep knowledge of the subject, and a strong foundation in biblical faith by Bishop Aubrey Shines. This brief but informative book offers a guide and handy reference for pastors and congregants alike on how to think and talk about these profoundly challenging questions from a Christian perspective.--
