Patrisse Khan-Cullors, co-founder of Black Lives Matter and the author of the new book, WHEN THEY CALL YOU A TERRORIST: A Black Lives Matter Memoir, a meaningful, empowering account of strength and resilience.
In this conversation, hosted by long-time organizer Cat Brooks, we hear Patrisse Cullors insights on Black Liberation, Police Terrorism and the criminalization of Black activism in America.
WHEN THEY CALL YOU A TERRORIST takes an intimate look at Cullors time growing up in Van Nuys, California, surrounded by a devoted family and supportive friends, and weaves her experiences into the larger picture of how predominantly Black and Latino neighborhoods are under constant systemic attack. From an unrelenting and hostile police presence, to disproportionate punitive action, to lack of basic social and medical services, Cullors and bandele show how lack of personal security and dignity makes daily life an act of survival.
