About: Black Lives Matter covers the shootings that touched off passionate protests, the work of activists to bring about a more just legal system, and the tensions in US society that these events have brought to light.
Anna’s Thoughts: This is a straight forward non-fiction account of the different killings of blacks recently and the history of black inequality. I appreciated that the authors just stated the facts and did not insert any opinion except for the occasional quotes from others. This book really makes you think; I ended up researching a few of the incidents further after reading Black Lives Matter. It is a very quick read which is good considering the time you will take looking up further information about convictions, acquittals, etc.
