Short Synopsis
In this stirring and insightful analysis, activist and scholar Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor surveys the historical and contemporary ravages of racism and persistence of structural inequality such as mass incarceration and black unemployment.

Full Synopsis
The eruption of mass protests in the wake of the police murders of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, and Eric Garner in New York City have challenged the impunity with which officers of the law carry out violence against black people and punctured the illusion of a postracial America. The Black Lives Matter movement has awakened a new generation of activists.

In this stirring and insightful analysis, activist and scholar Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor surveys the historical and contemporary ravages of racism and persistence of structural inequality such as mass incarceration and black unemployment. In this context, she argues that this new struggle against police violence holds the potential to reignite a broader push for black liberation.

"From #BlackLivesMatter to Black Liberation is a must read for everyone who is serious about the ongoing praxis of freedom." ---Barbara Ransby, author of Ella Baker and the Black Freedom Movement

"[Taylor's] book is required reading for anyone interested in justice, equality and freedom." ---Michael C. Dawson, author of Blacks In and Out of the Left
