A Black Lives Matter Memoir
Patrisse Khan-Cullors - 2018-01-16
Calificación de Goodreads
Un libro de memorias poético y poderoso sobre lo que significa ser una mujer negra en Estados Unidos y la co-fundación de un movimiento que exige justicia para todos en la tierra de los libres. Criada por una madre soltera en un barrio empobrecido de Los Ángeles, Patrisse Khan-Cullors experimentó de primera mano el prejuicio y la persecución que sufren los afroamericanos a manos de las fuerzas del orden. Para Patrisse, las personas más vulnerables del país son los negros. Perseguidos deliberada y despiadadamente por un sistema de justicia penal que funciona según la agenda de privilegios de los blancos, los negros están sujetos a un categorización racial injustificable y a la brutalidad policial. En 2013, cuando el asesino de Trayvon Martin quedó libre, la indignación de Patrisse la llevó a cofundar Black Lives Matter con Alicia Garza y ​​Opal Tometi. Condenadas como terroristas y consideradas una amenaza para Estados Unidos, estas amorosas mujeres fundaron un hashtag que dio origen al movimiento para exigir responsabilidades a las autoridades que continuamente hacen la vista gorda ante las injusticias infligidas a las personas de piel negra y morena. Patrisse, que defiende los derechos humanos frente al racismo violento, es una superviviente. Transformó su dolor personal en poder político, dando voz a un pueblo que sufría la desigualdad y un movimiento impulsado por su fuerza y ​​amor para decirle al país y al mundo que Black Lives Matter. Cuando te llaman terrorista es la reflexión de Patrisse Khan-Cullors y Asha Bandele sobre la humanidad.

Teaching for Black Lives book cover
Teaching for Black Lives
Dyan Watson - 2018-04-16
Calificación de Goodreads
Teaching for Black Lives is a revolutionary tool in the resistance against racist, fascist, white nationalist ideology in education. Divided into five sections, the book covers topics ranging from making black lives matter in our schools to exploring identity and loving blackness. This timely volume should become a central staple in how we understand race and the radical imaginary in K-12 classrooms.

Democracy Matters
Winning the Fight Against Imperialism
Cornel West - 2005-01-01 (publicado por primera vez en 2004)
Calificación de Goodreads
Democracy Matters examines the development of democracy in America and the Middle East. Philosopher Cornel West argues that to better promote democratization globally, America must first confront its history of imperialist corruption. West highlights the connection between racism and imperialism in America's hegemonic pursuits, and explores the hypocrisies in our country's dealings with the world. He calls for a revival of America's democratic spirit, drawing from the powerful voices of the democratization tradition, including Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. This passionate and provocative book challenges our views on America's role in the world today.
