One thought on “Black Lives Matter

  1. C.E. G

    Grades 6 12 Really glad this exists, so middle and high schoolers can use it as a resource for reports in school Will probably bring out on school visits in the future Very even handed.The one thing that came up for me reading the book, influenced by what I saw after the 4th precinct, is skepticism about authoritative sources There was so much crap journalism that overvalued police propaganda and undervalued ignored witness testimony and footage, that I had trouble trusting this research fully.

    Required reading for tweens and teens The authors give a thorough but appropriate length for the audience and even handed accounting of the Black Lives Matter movement I appreciated the history and the side fact columns which helped define the context for how this movement began in the first place.As an adult, this is a quick read the only reason why it took me longer was it got borrowed by the teen and tween in the house A good sign indeed of a good nonfiction book My teen is well aware of this [...]

  3. Kelsey

    The book is geared toward middle school students and as such provides a great synopsis of the challenges facing African Americans today in the criminal justice system, and how this is related to African American history in the US, recent police shootings, and the Black Lives Matter movement Informative, well balanced Makes me reflect on how damaging fear is.For a parent of a kid reading this any adult actually I would definitely recommend Michelle Alexander s book The New Jim Crow.

  4. Cara Byrne

    A brief introduction good for young adults, though as an adult reader, I wish it had content Part of Sarah Park Dahlen s Dismantling Racism Social Justice Children s Literature reading list.

  5. Amy Lafleur

    Well balanced and informative book about the Black Lives Matter movement The book describes the events that led up to the Black Lives Matter movement and protests Edwards also gives a context for the movement, placing it within the context of segregation, racism, and the Civil Rights Movement Timely book geared toward teens that will help them understand current events The book also contains information about resources both print and digital for further information.

  6. Angelic

    I didn t realize this book was written expressly for teens, but it was a good introduction into the importance and meaning of the Black Lives Matter movement, while offering an unbiased view with factual information Additionally, it defined terms that many teens and adults may find difficult to understand and provided summaries of various criminal justice terms.

  7. Ami Pendley

    Balanced and informative I would have preferred a chronological text structure I m not sure why the authors decided to jump back and forth through history.

  8. Sarah

    Comprehensive and well balanced overview of the current movement with additional historical information for context.
