In a TEDxBoston talk last year, activist and scholar Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor made a powerful statement: “One hundred and fifty years after emancipation, the country still requires a movement that makes the most basic of claims: that black lives matter.” Taylor considers the Black Lives Matter movement as a catalyst for broad-scale black liberation in her 2016 book on the subject. Now, as the country’s 45th president makes his mark, the Princeton University assistant professor sounds off in the talk “#BlackLivesMatter in the Trump Era.” Hailed by fellow scholar Michelle Alexander for her “examination of the social, political and economic dimensions of the prevailing racial order,” Taylor enlightens listeners as part of the Will Miller Social Justice Lecture Series.
