Building a Movement – A Black Lives Matter Memoir Premiere

Author and Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Khan-Cullors and author asha bandele in conversation with Mother Jones reporter Jamilah King.

Tune into the premiere broadcast on March 22, 2018 at 8:30 pm ET.

For most of us, the Black Lives Matter movement caught our attention in 2014, after the death of Michael Brown, Jr., at the hands of a Ferguson, Missouri, police officer. But for Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Khan-Cullors, the movement’s origins go back much further and are much more complicated than a single protest.

In her new book, When They Call You a Terrorist: A Black Lives Matter Memoir, Khan-Cullors joined co-author asha bandele, an activist and journalist, to provide a powerful portrait of a community rooted in love, despite the fact that the movement’s leaders have been maligned as terrorists and threats to America. At a time when hate and violence seem all too prevalent, Khan-Cullors and bandele share an empowering story of survival, strength, and resilience.

Join the co-authors, in conversation with Mother Jones reporter Jamilah King, as they discuss the new memoir and the ongoing freedom struggle in America.

This program is co-hosted by reader-supported investigative news organization Mother Jones and the Bay Area Book Festival as part of its 2018 conversation series.
