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

by Patrisse Khan-Cullors & asha bandele - £9.99  Canongate Books Ltd (2019)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781786893055 | ISBN 10: 1786893053

“Twelve. That was the year that I learned that being Black and poor defined me more than being bright and hopeful and ready.”
 
The powerful memoir of one of the co-founders of Black Lives Matter which explores how the movement was born.
 
Following the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin, three women – Alicia Garza, Opal Tometi, and Patrisse Khan-Cullors – came together to form an active response to the systemic racism causing the deaths of so many African-Americans. They simply said: Black Lives Matter; and for that, they were labelled terrorists.
 
In this empowering account of survival, strength and resilience, Patrisse Khan-Cullors and award-winning author and journalist asha bandele recount the personal story that led Patrisse to become a founder of Black Lives Matter, seeking to end the culture that declares Black life expendable. Like the era-defining movement she helped create, this rallying cry demands you do not look away.
 
With a foreword by Angela Davis.
