Mini Review: When They Call You a Terrorist by Patrisse Khan-Cullors




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

by Patrisse Khan-Cullors, Asha Bandele, Angela Y. Davis (Foreword)


4****


I'd been wanting to read this for a while and my hold at the library for the audiobook finally came through, just at a time where the book seems particularly important. Then again, reading it and other books, listening to conversations that are going on about race and prejudice and privilege, I am realizing it, or rather it's message, has been important for hundreds of years. While this book was more memoir than I realized it would be, it was still interesting and highlighted aspects of the Black experience in America which I admit I did not truly grasp before. I think the author could have gone further in certain areas, but it's definitely pushed me to seek out more books to learn about race in America and to consider how I can contribute to positive change, which is so long overdue. Recommended!
