Black Lives Matter: The Expectations of Justice in a Democracy is a work of non-fiction covering important socio-political and cultural issues, and was penned by author Everett Watson. More important than ever in light of the events of this past year, this short and informative discussion piece takes us through some of the key factors of the BLM movement, both now and in its earlier stages. Written in tribute to those who have raised their voices and acted for those whose lives have been taken away, the work puts forth its narrative of questioning power, holding those in authority accountable, and standing up against oppression even if it’s not your personal experience.

Author Everett Watson has produced a concise manifesto to remind us all of the important work of the Black Lives Matter movement, and how we can stay informed and continue to work towards full equality with its message constantly in mind. I thought the pairing of powerful words of encouragement against photographs from the media and the protests themselves was an excellent way to help those messages stay in one’s mind. In a world so large, it is important that we remember to reunite and thrive as humanity and a collective rather than just as individuals, so I found many of the quotes emotive and useful in educating others to the same effect. Overall, I would certainly recommend Black Lives Matter: The Expectations of Justice in a Democracy as a reminder for all that the fight is not yet won, and what we must remember moving forward to ensure that the battle against injustice continues.
