Staff Reviews


When They Call You a Terrorist is not so much a memoir of being in the movement or even really about creating the movement, but about the systems of oppression and white supremacy experienced at an intimate and personal level which made creating the Black Lives Matter Movement urgent and necessary. It is a reminder that, while intentionally decentralized, #BLM is Queer, Trans, and Woman led. It is a call out to all of the organizers who came before and after, that helped to create and sustain a space to say Black Lives Matter. This book is painful to read, but also beautifully written and full of determination and promise. When They Call You a Terrorist should be mandatory reading.

Description


This program includes a foreword read by Angela Davis

Patrisse Khan-Cullors' and asha bandele's instant New York Times bestseller, When They Call You a Terrorist is now adapted for the YA audience!


A movement that started with a hashtag--#BlackLivesMatter--on Twitter spread across the nation and then across the world.

From one of the co-founders of the Black Lives Matter movement comes a poetic memoir and reflection on humanity. Necessary and timely, Patrisse Khan-Cullors’ story asks us to remember that protest in the interest of the most vulnerable comes from love. Leaders of the Black Lives Matter movement have been called terrorists, a threat to America. But in truth, they are loving women whose life experiences have led them to seek justice for those victimized by the powerful.

In this meaningful, empowering account of survival, strength, and resilience, Cullors and asha bandele seek to change the culture that declares innocent black life expendable.
