Patrisse Khan-Cullors, community organizer and social activist, artist, and one of the co-founders of the Black Lives Matter movement will be in Atlanta on Jan. 22nd. She’ll be speaking at the Carter Center at 7:00 p.m. about her new book entitled When They Call You a Terrorist: A Black Lives Matter Memoir. Patrisse co-authored the book with asha bandele, an award-winning author, former senior editor at Essence, and a senior director at the Drug Policy Alliance.
I spoke to Patrisse about the importance of sharing her memoir now—with her family and with the public. We also talked about the toll that the fight for social justice takes on black women in particular, and how people can get involved in their communities.
