The Movement for Black Lives Issue “Takeover”
When In These Times reports on social movements, we strive to keep journalistic distance, believing that a progressive political movement needs its own independent media to inform and orient itself. But for one special issue, we’re making an exception. For the July issue, we invited a social movement to “take over” editorial control.
As the guest editorial collective, made up of organizers with the Movement for Black Lives, put it:
“We know our story has been told for us rather than by us, and it’s time to change that.”
