A note from Rep Club:
All profits from the sale of this title will be donated to the Summaeverythang Community Center in Jazzi's hometown, South Central LA. This product listing is our attempt at placating a debate amongst our community, staff, and customers. We’d like to be clear: This is not an endorsement of Shaun King, his racial identity*, his politics, nor this memoir (we haven’t read it), but rather a place to buy Black if you’re gonna buy it anyway.
Before you do (or don’t) we’d like to recommend reading this article and these titles by Black femme movement leaders:
- When They Call You A Terrorist: A Black Lives Matter Memoir by Patrisse Cullors & asha bandele
- Freedom Is a Constant Struggle: Ferguson, Palestine, and the Foundations of a Movement by Angela Y. Davis
- Assata: An Autobiography by Assata Shakur
*Rep Club stocks titles predominately by Black & POC authors. It is contested whether King is either.
From the publisher:
“A captivating memoir of change. A hope-filled sermon for change. A tactical blueprint for how we can each make change. Make Change is all three and all the more towards an equitable and just world.”
— Ibram X. Kendi, National Book Award-winning author of Stamped from the Beginning and How to Be an Antiracist
Activist and journalist Shaun King reflects on the events that made him one of the most prominent social justice leaders of our time and lays out a clear action plan for you to join the fight.
As a leader of the Black Lives Matter movement, Shaun King has become one of the most recognizable and powerful voices on the front lines of civil rights in our time. His commitment to reforming the justice system and making America a more equitable place has brought challenges and triumphs, soaring victories and crushing defeats. Throughout his wide-ranging activism, King’s commentary remains rooted in both exhaustive research and abundant passion.
In Make Change, King offers an inspiring look at the moments that have shaped his life and considers the ways social movements can grow and evolve in this hyper-connected era. He shares stories from his efforts leading the Raise the Age campaign and his work fighting police brutality, while providing a roadmap for how to stay sane, safe, and motivated even in the worst of political climates. By turns infuriating, inspiring, and educational, Make Change will resonate with those who believe that America can—and must—do better.
