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. 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.
Shaun King was recently named by Time Magazine as one of the 25 most important people in the world online. He covers civil rights issues for the Intercept and is writer-in-residence at the Fair Punishment Project at Harvard Law School. Previously, King served as a pastor, teacher, and full time motivational speaker in Atlanta’s juvenile justice system. In 2019, King launched the media platform The North Star, which has hundreds of thousands of members and subscribers. His podcast The Breakdown has remained one of the most popular news and politics category on Apple with over 100k subscribers. He lives in Brooklyn with his family. Author photo by Nigil Crawford.
