Gr 5-9—The five books in this series strive to help readers understand the history that led to the Black Lives Matter movement and the present actions taken to fight injustice. The publisher has once again delivered a great series of books for research. Filled with facts and statistics, these books are well written and engaging. Stories of police violence are the backdrop to the facts, and the BLM movement's reach to other disadvantaged groups is mentioned. The text is the main focus of these books for older students, but colorful photos and graphs keep the books lively. They contain a glossary, source notes, further research section, and an index. VERDICT A great series for researching all aspects of the Black Lives Matter movement.
