Black Visions Collective is delighted to announce that Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Khan-Cullors will be joining us for an intimate community discussion about her new book 'When They Call You A Terrorist: A Black Lives Matter Memoir’! 

ABOUT THE BOOK: 

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 co-author asha bandele seek to change the culture that declares innocent black life expendable.

"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
