P&P Live! Patrisse Khan-Cullors-When They Call You a Terrorist: A Story of Black Lives Matter and the Power to Change the World—in conversation with Marley Dias

Upcoming Event
Tuesday, October 6, 2020 - 7:00pm

From one of the co-founders of the Black Lives Matter movement comes a poetic memoir and reflection on humanity. Necessary and timely, Patrisse Khan-Cullors’ story asks us to remember that protest in the interest of the most vulnerable comes from love. Leaders of the Black Lives Matter movement have been called terrorists, a threat to America. But in truth, they are loving women whose life experiences have led them to seek justice for those victimized by the powerful.

Patrisse will be in conversation with activist, author, and founder of #1000BlackGirlBooks campaign Marley Dias.

Patrisse Khan-Cullors is an artist, organizer, and freedom fighter from Los Angeles, CA.

Patrisse is currently the Faculty Director of Arizona’s Prescott College new Social and Environmental Arts Practice MFA program, which she developed nesting a curriculum focused on the intersection of art, social justice, and community organizing that is first of its kind in the nation.
