Publisher's Summary

The emotional and powerful story of one of the cofounders 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 cofounders 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.
This program is read by Patrisse Khan-Cullors and includes a bonus conversation.

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.
