What a privilege to have the brilliant Chris Lebron (read his new book The Making of ‘Black Lives Matter’ and find him on Twitter!) join What Matters Most for an inspired conversation about race, politics, and our ongoing struggle to evolve as a nation.

Chris Lebron is Assistant Professor of African American Studies and Philosophy. His interests include moral theory, political ethics, race, and method. His book, The Color Of Our Shame: Race and Justice In Our Time, was published by Oxford University Press in August 2013 and was awarded First Book Prize by the American Political Science Association Foundations of Political Theory section.

He recently released his second book, The Making of ‘Black Lives Matter’: A Brief History of an Idea, currently under contract with Oxford University Press. Additionally, Chris has been active in public forums discussing race, social justice, and democratic ethics – most recently he has written for The Boston Review and The New York Times.
