Why Black Lives Matter Still Matters https://newrepublic.com/article/141700/black-lives-matter-still-matters-new-form-civil-rights-activism

favorite quote from the article:

“BLM has forged a movement that is far more inclusive and democratic than either the Black Panthers or civil rights activists ever envisioned.”

( from the article in New Republic Magazine, Why Black Lives Matter Still Matters, April 6, 2017, by Dr. Penial Joseph. )

‘BLM has moved beyond many of the blind spots and shortcomings of its predecessors, embracing the full complexity of black identity and forging a movement that is far more inclusive and democratic than either the Panthers or civil rights activists ever envisioned.

 Many of its most active leaders are queer women and feminists. Its decentralized structure fosters participation and power sharing. It makes direct links between the struggles of black Americans and the marginalization and oppression of women, those in LGBTQ communities, and other people of color. ‘
