The emotional and powerful story from the co-founder of the Black Lives Matter movement and how it came to be.

"It is a story our nation desperately needs to hear, especially right now. Our country has been at war with its own people for decades...This remarkable book ... forces us to face the consequence of the choices our nation made when we criminalized a generation." -Michelle Alexander, author of The New Jim Crow

From one of the co-founders of Black Lives Matter, the hashtag that turned into a movement and global network, Patrisse Cullors, comes a poetic memoir and reflection on humanity. WHEN THEY CALL YOU A TERRORIST: A Black Lives Matter Memoir co-written with award-winning author and journalist asha bandele, 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.

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.

PATRISSE CULLORS is an artist, organizer, and freedom fighter from Los Angeles, CA. Co-founder of Black Lives Matter, she is also a performance artist, Fulbright scholar, public speaker, and an NAACP History Maker.

"Patrisse Cullors is a leading visionary and activist, feminist, civil rights leader who has literally changed the trajectory of politics and resistance in America." -Eve Ensler
