Student Research Guide: Black Lives Matter: Other Sources

By Isabella Loy, Fall 2020, LIB 201

Other Sources

“Black Lives Matter.” Wikipedia: The Free Encyclopedia. Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia, 30 November 2020. Web. Accessed 1 December 2020, en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Lives_Matter

This source is the Wikipedia page for the BLM movement. There is a plethora of information on this site, including a timeline dating back to 2014, the international movement, reactions (such as ‘All Lives Matter,’ and ‘Blue Lives Matter’), criticism, and information on policing in the United States. This is a great informational website when it comes to researching BLM. You can get basic information, dates, etc. Now, this isn’t a peer-reviewed journal, so to dig deeper you definitely need to find more of those, but this is a good starting point. 

“Killing of George Floyd.” Wikipedia: The Free Encyclopedia. Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia, 1 December 2020. Web. Accessed 1 December 2020, en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Killing_of_George_Floyd

This is another Wikipedia page, and I included it because the killing of George Floyd was arguably the biggest turning point in the modern BLM movement. It happened recently, and there is still a lot of controversy, so there is going to be a lot of conflicting information out there. This wiki page just gives the facts, the dates of the shooting, images of the officers involved, images of Floyd, and more. This is a useful tool if you are looking for background information on the videotaped murder of George Floyd.
