Description
The first book to go behind the barricades of #blacklivesmatter to tell the story of the young men and women who are calling for a new America. Washington Post reporter Wesley Lowery draws on his own experience as a young biracial journalist as he tells the story of the year that shook America. From the killings of Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Florida and Mike Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, to the death of Freddie Gray in Baltimore, Maryland--with a stop in Selma, Alabama along the way--Lowery takes readers to the front lines of history. The repercussions of police violence have sent citizens into the streets proclaiming that Black Lives Matter, and sent politicians scrambling for a new way of understanding the basic social contract between the governed and those who govern. With bracing intensity and incredible access, Lowery examines the economic, political, and personal histories that inform this movement, and place what it has accomplished--and what remains to be done--in the context of the last fifty years of American history. By also telling the story of his own life growing up biracial in Cleveland, Ohio, as the son of a black journalist, he will explain the roles that hope and optimism play in shaping one's own identity. They Can't Kill Us All is a galvanizing book that offers more than just behind-the-scenes coverage of the story of citizen resistance to police brutality. It will also explain where the movement came from, where it is headed, and where it still has to go.
