Book Study: When They Call You a Terrorist: A Black Lives Matter Memoir

 

Patrisse Kahn-Cullors and asha bandele’s memoir When They Call You a Terrorist is a coming-of-age story that reveals the depth of racial targeting and its impact on Black families and neighborhoods during Kahn-Cullors’ time growing up in Los Angeles.  The book also explores the ways in which these experiences led Kahn-Cullors to co-found Black Lives Matter with two other women.

Join Peter Eichten and Ann Manning for a rich discussion of this book with its focus on racial injustice perpetuated by America’s War on Drugs during multiple presidents’ terms and the effects this policy had in criminalizing a generation of Black people.  The class will also look at the work white people, especially, have to do to uncover and change the messages in this country about Black people and criminality.

  • Tuesday August 3rd & 10th   *   10:30AM – 12PM
  • Thursday August 12nd & 26th *   6:30PM- 8:00PM
