Description

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.

This book is a must-read! #Audible1

I'm so glad this book is available in audio, and I'm so glad and grateful to the author for reading it themself! It's a wonderfully courageous, honest telling with sharp, astute political analysis. But also an analysis that links the personal and the political. And it's a deeply engaging listen! I couldn't turn it off, and listened to the whole thing in one night. Khan-Cullors is a great story-teller, and the stories they select to tell are both highly personable and get their point across like an arrow to the heart! So, as said above, this book is a must-read/listen for anyone seeking a deeper engagement with the politics of race and class. Though, I would also recommend it for those new to those areas, as Khan-Cullors writes in a very clear, highly accessible, down-to-Earth way. Definitely a book to keep coming back to!

Very educational

Memoirs of one of the three women who founded #BlackLivesMatter, with a focus on growing up in what was essentially a police occupied part of LA during the War on Drugs. She spent a lot of time talking about police interaction with her and her family, especially her brother who had mental health problems and was in and out of jail most of his life instead of getting treatment. The second part was more about her highschool years, and her growing activism as a community organiser and then as one of the founders of BLM, with a lot of attention to the facts, statistics and theory behind her political views.

It's a pretty solid piece of polemic in that regard, that starts out with a quote by Assata Shakur and an intro by Angela Davis, in case you're wondering what political ground on which we've landed. A lot of it felt very tied in with the history of the Black Panther Party that I read last year, and this seemed to me a guns-free continuation of the work they were trying to do.

What probably interested me a little more was the way that Khan-Cullors works at integrating her political beliefs into her family life, and the way she's struggled to understand how her family (especially the repeated incarceration and deaths of her male relatives) has been shaped by politics. She talks a lot about the difficulty of maintaining relationships when struggling with family problems and the pressure of being an activist, she talks about how to raise a kid in this world, she talks about being queer and dating men, and what marriage means. Honestly, she seems really smart, and really cool, and the kind of person you'd want to hang out with.

Would highly recommend for contemporary history. I was definitely pretty fuzzy on the details when it came to the origins of BLM, and this lays it out nicely.

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.

Must Read

This is a must read book. Patrisse tells a story much like my own in the wake of childhood trauma, but seeing the differences in how we were both treated was incredibly eye-opening. This is the book you need to begin your journey as an ally seeking to help end white supremacy. Read it. Read it again. And again. Listen. And help.

Got it for a class, finished it for me!

Hearing her story touched me in different ways. enlightening me on some topics and strengthening my views on others. We have different lives and experiences but have experienced similar feelings. I thank Patrisse for sharing her truth and allowing us the walk through it with her!

A must for all white allies

One of the most profound memoirs I have ever listened to. For anyone out there who is trying to be a better ally, and use your voice to support the movement of BLM, this is an absolute must. Patrisse's history, experiences, and exposure to the completely blatant acts of racism and terrorism she and her family were subjected to are painful and heart wrenching. I choked up when the book finished, I had gotten used to hearing Patrisse's calming voice on my commute every day. I will take this book with me always and will use what I heard to show up and be a better ally to all.

Powerful She-roe!

This book puts everything into perspective. It is an important education on the world today and how things are interpreted and especially how we’re made to believe what is not real. I applaud Patrisse for her courage and foresight. This should be a must read in every class (History) in America! This is not a book for only people of color but for anyone that cares to understand the system we live in and how things get done. Highly recommended.
