Even in the wake of the Dallas shooting of five policemen at a Black Lives Matter rally, academia is increasingly looking to the group for multicultural wisdom without questioning exactly what BLM does.

In a pair of reports that came out in the wake of the Dallas shooting, Accuracy in Media (AIM) and Accuracy in Academia (AIA) do just that:

  • In the AIM special report, “Hope and Change” Becomes “Death and Destruction,” Cliff Kincaid looks at the links between the Obama Administration, Black Lives Matter and a wave of cop killings which have occurred in the United States over the past few years.
  • In Black Lives Matter: Beyond the Riots, AIA looks at BLM’s role in the destruction of already crime-ridden cities and the extent to which BLM tries to influence policies far beyond inner cities. (You can read the report here: Black Lives Matter Beyond the Riots Special Report July 2016)

Taken together with a special report James Simpson wrote for AIM earlier this year, this trio of dispatches comprises what may well be the most comprehensive source on BLM available today. AIA executive director Mal Kline will be hosting an authors’ night on Tuesday, July 19, 2016, in which AIA will distribute all three reports.

The event will also feature complimentary food and beverages and be held at
