Black Liberation through Action and Resistance: MOVE serves as a call to action for Black millennials as well as [white] co-conspirators who are either immersed in the work of Black liberation or have an interest in beginning their own journey toward anti-racism. This book acknowledges and highlights past social justice movements as well as offers critiques for where they might have missed the mark. The theory behind MOVE challenges anti-Blackness, patriarchy, white supremacy, and misogynoir ideologies that are aimed at the continued oppression of the descendants of the enslaved. This book is unique in that it provides a Black liberation soundtrack via the chapter titles which can be used to inspire its readers.
