Patrisse Cullors’ highly anticipated memoir When They Call You A Terrorist: A Black Lives Matter Memoir list as the #1 new release on Amazon.
We owe a debt of gratitude to Ms. Patrisse Cullors and her Black Lives Matter co-founders. They have stood valiantly on the front lines fighting for us and against injustice. Since hitting the ground in 2013, they have been all across the globe advocating, defending and putting a bright light on matters of police brutality and racism. Compiling those thoughts and feelings into a book, Patrisse crafted her first memoir, When They Call You A Terrorist: A Black Lives Matter Memoir, which made its mark as the #1 new release in African-American & Black Biographies.
“This remarkable book reveals what inspired Patrisse’s visionary and courageous activism and forces us to face the consequence of the choices our nation made hen we criminalized a generation. This book is a must-read for all of us.” Michelle Alexander, author of The New Jim Crow, said in a press release. Set for nationwide release on Jan. 16, When They Call You A Terrorist asks readers to remember that protest stems from love and is an American birthright.
I am grateful for all the positive and moving reviews this books has been given thus far,” says Patrisse Cullors. “I’m so honored Amazon gave the book a #1 release. We must continue to challenge a country that kills black people with impunity and #BlackLivesMatter has stood up courageously to some of the most powerful government agencies in this country. I hope this book reinvigorates our work across the globe.
