Description

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 the 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.

Raising the collective MIND!!

The author does a superb job at interweaving past, current and future elements underpinning the racially divided struggle. We, who have been pushed to a lesser subclass by the egregious elite, MUST constantly remind ourselves that their class' ONLY power derives from our divisiveness.

Read until your eyes bleed. Educate yourself until your minds bursts. Involve yourselves in the struggle until you realize that your pain is far from your own!

Saddening and enraging, but an absolutely NECESSARY and brilliant piece of work!!!!

File has errors

The final few chapters have errors and replays earlier material. The arguments in the book are explosive and well-supported. Highly recommend.

This book is a must read

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I loved every syllable of the book. When you here somebody speak the true with facts it allows you feel good inside.

The chapters are off

the book is GREAT. but the chapters are off. for example when I click on chapter 5 it says that is chapter 4. I use this for school and I want to be able to site the chapters right but it’s just not right here.

Food for thought, but not enough historical detail

I learned some new belief systems, which was valuable overall. But I struggled to follow the first half of the book, because I'm too young to remember the civil rights movement first hand, but this book just jumped right in to interpretations and political arguments without giving the historical facts first. It annoyed me to be argued at, without having the facts at hand to evaluate the arguments. I definitely got more out of the second half of the book because I remember most of the events from recent news. Independent of content, I enjoy the way the author uses words.

The narrator was ok but not great. She articulated clearly but she used exactly the same rhythmic emphasis on every single sentence, whether it was a positive or a negative sentence. It often felt like she wasn't parsing the meanings of the sentences as she read them, so she wasn't using appropriately modified rhythm.
