Patrisse Khan-Cullors in conversation about #BlackLivesMatter at Manchester Central Library, Manchester, 13 March 2018, from £6.00 - Book now

Presented by Manchester Literature Festival in partnership with the Centre for New Writing, prominent activist and LA-based artist Patrisse Khan-Cullors discusses her memoir, When They Call You a Terrorist. Co-written with author and journalist Asha Bandele, When They Call You a Terrorist is a courageous and extraordinary account of survival, strength and resistance. Informed by Patrisse’s personal story and experiences, the memoir describes her journey from becoming a community organiser at 16 to co-founding several activist and civil rights movements in the US, including Dignity, Power Now and Black Lives Matter. With accounts of the brutal treatment of family and friends by the state, the severe socio-economic disadvantages handed to those born in black majority communities and dismaying personal experiences of racial and LGBTQ+ stigma, When They Call You a Terrorist looks at the cultural drivers of structural inequality, oppression, poverty, misogyny and racism, and why they should be actively addressed.
