Summary The Struggle over Black Lives Matter and All Lives Matter examines the complex relationship between the Black Lives Matter and All Lives Matter movements as it unfolds on social media and in offline interpersonal relationships. Exploring cultural influences like family history, fear, religion, postracialism, and workplace pressure, Edgar and Johnson trace the meanings of these movements from the perspectives of ordinary participants. The Struggle over Black Lives Matter and All Lives Matter highlights the motivations for investing in social movements and counter-movements to show how history, both remembered and misremembered, bubbles beneath the surface of online social justice campaigns. Social media users enact continuations of American history through a lens of their own past experiences. This book ties together online and offline, national and local, and personal and political to understand one of the defining social justice struggles of our time--back cover.
