    A number of noteworthy books have come out in the past few years that provide context on Black Lives Matter for anyone who wants to gain a better understanding of the movement. We’ve put together a list of recommendations made up of recent releases, along with a selection of relevant older titles that still command attention.

    A collection of books, journal articles and magazine content that amplifies Black voices and the issues raised by the Black Lives Matter movement When a scholarly publisher endorses the statement that Black Lives Matter, especially in the context of current societal tensions in the US and other countries, it needs to do more than just echo it. Knowingly and unknowingly we all grapple with race every day. Understanding White Privilege delves into the complex interplay between race, power, and privilege in both organizations and private life. It offers an unflinching look at how ignorance can perpetuate privilege, and offers practical and thoughtful insights into how people of all races can work to break this cycle.
