When They Call You a Terrorist: A Black Lives Matter Memoir

By Patrisse Khan Cullors, Asha Bandele

The instant New York Times Bestseller

The emotional and powerful story of one of the co-founders of Black Lives Matter and how the movement was born.


"This remarkable book reveals what inspired Patrisse's visionary and courageous activism and forces us to face the consequence of the choices our nation made when we criminalized a generation. This book is a must-read for all of us." - Michelle Alexander, author of The New Jim Crow

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 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, Patrisse Cullors and asha bandele seek to change the culture that declares innocent black life expendable.



    REVIEW QUOTES

"You will not forget this book. It will stay with you, whispering to you long after the last page has been turned. It is a story our nation desperately needs to hear, especially right now. Our country has been at war with its own people for decades and the reasons for this tragedy are deeply rooted in our racial history and our post-industrial, globalized present. Entire communities defined by race and class have been deemed enemy territory and millions taken prisoner. Patrisse Cullors grew up as a child of this war -- a drug war that aimed to destroy families like hers, communities like hers, places she called home. asha bandele tells the story beautifully, sharing the often razor-sharp details of the police and prisons that punctuated Patrisse's young life with unflinching honesty and deep insight. This remarkable book reveals what inspired Patrisse's visionary and courageous activism and forces us to face the consequence of the choices our nation made when we criminalized a generation.
