When They Call You a Terrorist
Patrisse Khan-Cullors & Asha Bandele
The emotional and powerful story of one of the co-founders of Black Lives Matter and how the movement was born.
From one of the co-founders of the Black Lives Matter movement comes a poetic memoir and reflection on humanity. Necessary and timely, Patrisse Cullors' story asks the reader 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, Patrisse Cullors and Asha Bandele seek to change the culture that declares innocent black lives expendable.
