Shaun King is one of many voices — though an increasingly prominent voice — within the Black Lives Matter movement. By using social media to highlight, amplify and discuss news of police brutality, racial discrimination, and other civil rights issues, King has become an indispensable source for extending crucial conversations about social justice and equality.

King has written extensively about the Black Lives Matter movement, covering discrimination, police brutality, the prison industrial complex, and social justice in the wake of violence in New York, Baltimore, Cleveland, Ferguson, Missouri, Charleston, South Carolina and other cities. He is senior justice writer at the New York Daily News, a regular political commentator for The Young Turks and on the Tom Joyner Morning Show, and was justice writer for Daily Kos.
