Never miss a show! Email Signup Apple Podcasts Google Podcasts

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 a hostile police presence, to disproportionate punitive action, to lack of basic social and medical services, Cullors and co-author asha bandele show how lack of personal security and dignity makes daily life an act of survival.
