About Living While Black (From Chronicle Books): In homage to the radical power of art, Living While Black celebrates the small acts of resistance that comprise the daily lives of Black folks by presenting them in a series of vivid illustrations. Begun as Mance’s personal response to the groundswell of Black Lives Matter protests in 2020, Living While Black denounces the excessive surveillance, harassment, and violence aimed at Black folks engaged in the activities of everyday life—and celebrates the courage and resilience of the Black community. Fittingly, the book also features a foreword from Alicia Garza, BLM founder and principal at the Black Futures Lab. Mance’s thoughtful meditation on what it’s like to be Black in America makes a wonderful tool for teachers, students, activists, and parents navigating conversations about racism and resistance.
