The first book to go behind the barricades of #blacklivesmatter to tell the story of the young men and women who are calling for a new America.

In a closely reported book that draws on his own experience as a young biracial journalist, Washington Post reporter Wesley Lowery tells the story of the year that shook America. From the killings of Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Florida and Mike Brown in Ferguson, Missouri to the death of Freddie Gray in Baltimore, Maryland, with a stop in Selma, Alabama along the way, Lowery takes readers to the front lines of history as it unfolds. The repercussions of police violence have sent citizens into the streets proclaiming that Black Lives Matter and politicians scrambling for a new way of understanding the basic social contract between the governed and those who govern.

With bracing intensity and incredible access, Lowery examines the economic, political, and personal histories that inform this movement, and place what it has accomplished—and what remains to be done—in the context of the last fifty years of American history. By also telling the story of his own life growing up biracial in Cleveland, Ohio, the son of a black journalist, he will explain the roles that hope and optimism play in shaping one’s own identity.

They Can’t Kill Us All is a galvanizing book that offers more than just behind-the-scenes coverage of the story of citizen resistance to police brutality. It will also explain where the movement came from, where it is headed and where it still has to go.

Quotes & Awards

  • Lowery’s dispatches from the front lines of this new era in racial justice movement building have proven indispensable, and with They Can’t Kill Us All, he further shows just how vital his reporting has become. Part early history of a still growing movement, as well as part critique of the media charged with covering this movement, Lowery also offers a peek into the process of reporting—the structural challenges, unfortunate failures, and personal successes in accurately capturing the politics and personalities involved in the biggest domestic story of the Obama presidency. They Can’t Kill Us All proves itself a necessary read for anyone in need of greater understanding of why and how a new generation of young black activists have taken to the streets to demand justice from their country.
