Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor, an assistant professor of African American Studies at Princeton University, wanted to know why Black Lives Matter was becoming popular now, “when we’re living through the biggest concentration of black political power in American history,” she said in a 2016 interview with The Stranger. She wrote her book From #BlackLivesMatter to Black Liberation to explore that question, and also to write about the possibility of the movement widening its scope. Can a nonhierarchical organization focused on police brutality and mass incarceration create social change on a larger scale? This talk, following the five-year anniversary of Michael Brown's death in Ferguson, is your chance to listen, reflect, and act to make that goal a reality.
