Readers’ Corner: Black Lives Matter

Black Lives Matter (BLM) is an international activist movement that campaigns against violence and systemic racism towards black people. It is a member-led organization whose mission is “to build local power in order to help intervene in violence inflicted on Black communities by state and vigilantes.” BLM works toward a world where Black lives are no longer systematically targeted and helps support, educate, and provide starting points for conversation about the difficulties facing the Black community.

The selections on this week’s Readers’ Corner bravely cover issues of justice, race, and privilege.  We hope you will explore and learn something new from this Black Lives Matter booklist.
