Prior to spotting this autobiography in 's recommended reads for me I had never given much thought to how the Black Lives Matter movement had actually started or to the individuals who had been inspired to first shout the compelling slogan In When They Call You A Terrorist Patrisse Khan Cullors recollects her impoverished childhood and the years of blatant racial injustice which gave her the impetus to bravely stand up firstly for herself and her tribe then for black people across America and the worldWhen They Call You A Terrorist is a very readable and powerful work Khan Cullors writes with such clarity and vision that I would struggle to believe anyone would not be moved by her words That the double standards practiced by the police judiciary and politicians across America are intended to continue a form of Jim Crow segregation and provide ultra cheap labour for greedy corporations who profit from slave labour via the prison system is a shocking reality for thousands of people Reading this personal account of the effects of divided families inhumanely low wages slum landlords and no effective healthcare system really brought home to me how vital BLM is and how important it is that the people making a stand are not ignorantly dismissed as 'terrorists' As a child I was told that the Black Panthers were just violent terrorists 'like the IRA' and had no idea until I read a biography of Assata Shakur of the positive contributions Panthers made within black communities Khan Cullors family were recipients of essential food parcels for exampleKhan Cullors talks extensively about the need for healing as much as change about the importance of truly eual access to education art and self care programmes and that communities be allowed to exist for themselves without an oppressive police presence that insists on seeing and overreacting to wrongdoing in innocuous situations that would be ignored on white streets Her demands and those of Black Lives Matter seem so basic that it's difficult to understand how they cannot be simply granted I fervently hope that this decade will see real and lasting change
