Black Lives Matter - A Longform Stories Special Collection

320px Little Rock integration protestIn honor of Martin Luther King Jr.'s service, Longform Stories is pleased to present an extensive collection of articles, social media content, and other resources surrounding the topic of "Black Lives Matter".  

Included are a number of historical writings in order to compare how the racial issues prevalent from 50 years ago are so very similar to what we are seeing today.  It is with this in mind that we point to both present day longform stories as well as look back to the 1960's and 1970's for historical perspective.
