“Those who erroneously believe that the BLM movement and Church teachings are in conflict need not look any further than the pages of this book to see the myriad ways the two intersect. In fact, by embracing the values of BLM, Catholicism can begin to embody the values it preaches but often fails to practice.”—From the Foreword
Birth of a Movement presents a radical call to dignity and equality for all people. It examines the founders of the Black Lives Matter movement, the church’s involvement with slavery, including the decision by Georgetown University to make amends for its past actions, and the Catholic Church’s response to the recent deaths of Trayvon Martin, George Floyd, and Breonna Taylor.
In relating the story of the Black Lives Matter movement through a Christian lens, readers—Catholic and others—will gain insights and a deeper understanding of the movement and why it can help the church, and the country, move closer to racial equality.
