#BlackLivesMatter in the Era of Trump 02/23/2017

Keanga-Yamahtta Taylor writes on black politics, social movements and racial inequality in the US.  She is an assistant professor in the African American Studies department at Princeton University.  According to Taylor, the Black Lives Matter movement has awakened a new generation of activists.  
 
In her recent book, From #BlackLivesMatter to Black Liberation, she offers a stirring and insightful analysis of historical and contemporary ravages of racism and persistence of structural inequality such as mass incarceration and Black unemployment.  She argues that this new struggle against police violence holds the potential to reignite a broader push for Black liberation.
