    Description

    "Narrating her own work, Patrisse Khan-Cullors shares the salient moments of her life that led her to become a founder of Black Lives Matter...pain, frustration, and joy [emblazon] each word she utters." (AudioFile Magazine)

    This program is read by Patrisse Khan-Cullors and includes a bonus conversation.

    The emotional and powerful story of one of the co-founders of Black Lives Matter and how the movement was born. When They Call You a Terrorist by Patrisse Khan-Cullors and asha bandele is the essential audiobook for every conscientious American.

    From one of the co-founders of the Black Lives Matter movement comes a poetic audiobook 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.

    More praise for When They Call You a Terrorist:

    "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)

    "When They Call You a Terrorist...help[s] readers understand what it means to be a black woman in the United States today." (New York Times Book Review)

    I've never been in a terrorist's shoes

    This book was by far one of the most telling and purposeful stories I have ever read in relation to black stories. I am purposefully trying to surround myself with stories from POC and I came accross Patrisse. Her voice is not only engaging while listening to her story, but I felt as if I was able to step into her shoes for only a brief moment. I, as a white woman, will never experience the aggressions Patrisse, and many other POC do; however, I felt very compelled to get involved in this movement. I truly learned what BLM is and how important it is for so many black lives. My title says "I've never been in a terrorist's shoes". However, this book allowed me to understand what it's like to have empathy for those who experience such hatred and disregard for their life. I know that BLM is NOT a terrorist organization. But Patrisse paints a picture in this book that allows others to understand the ugliness, terror, and unjust nature that comes with being called a terrorist. Being saught out as such for most of her life. Her story includes heartbreak, courage, struggles, and much more. I highly reccomend listening to her tell her story with such stregnth. I admire the hell out of her! Thank you!

    Where the personal and political meet. . .

    This is such an important memoir. It provides context for BLM through personal narrative and illustrates the dehumanizing disparities in multiple institutions in U.S. life. And it's just a really well-told story. Thank you, Patrisse Khan-Cullors, for being so giving of yourself so that some of us can better understand.

    Everyone should listen!

    Would you listen to When They Call You a Terrorist again? Why?

    Yes, as a white person, it has given me a much better understanding and therefore more empathy of the reality in which black people live. Some of the scenes reminded me of what it might be like to live in a country with war on our soil; our fellow Americans live in constant fear. It is a piece of art, beautifully written.

    What did you like best about this story?

    A deeper understanding of America's history, present and future.

    Have you listened to any of Patrisse Khan-Cullors’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, I have not.

    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Cry and laugh.

    Any additional comments?

    Listen to this book. You will not regret it.

    Beautiful and Truthful look at social justice.

    Patrice and co authors are amazing. Her personal narrative it told along with the history and criminalization of black skin in America. I loved it! #BlackLivesMatter

    A necessary read to understanding.

    This is the insight that we need everyone to understand, the reason BLM exists and why such a charged movement is necessary.

    questionsble

    I feel now that BLM is a hate group. There has to be a middle where everyone is treated equally.

    I’m sorry I cannot give it more stars

    Thoughtful, informative, heartbreaking at times. Everyone should read this. Most especially if you are white.

    Patrisse, it was an honor to read your story. Thank you for telling it, and for all of your work.

    I wanted to understand BLM

    I listened to this book wanted to better understand the BLM movement. To me she is just angry at life. Many times life sucks for all of us. Regardless of color. I don’t think she fully understands many of her problems resulted from poverty. Not just race. I really wanted to understand BLM but this just seemed a sob story for life being difficult and then blaming. I still believe all people matter and everyone has a story. Just seems in this day and time that if you are louder, your story gets heard.
