Description

Patrisse Khan-Cullors
When They Call You a Terrorist: A Black Lives
Mon 12 March 2018, 19:00-20:00
Waterstones (Union Street entrance)
£8 / £6 / £4.50

£4.50 PARTNER RATE is for staff, students or members at the following organisation: Arts Council England, Bristol City Council, Business West, University of Bristol and UWE.

In 2013, following the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin, three women – Alicia Garza, Opal Tometi and Patrisse Khan-Cullors – came together to form an active response to the systemic racism causing the deaths of so many African-Americans. They simply said: Black Lives Matter; and for that, they were labelled terrorists.

Khan-Cullors now tells the story that led her to become a founder of Black Lives Matter, seeking to end the culture that declares innocent black life expendable. From accounts of the brutal treatment of friends and family by the state (most notably her brother) to the severe socio-economic disadvantages handed to those born in black majority communities like those she grew up in; dismaying personal experiences of racial and LGBT stigma to her first community campaigns as an activist, she builds an understanding of the cultural drivers of the issues of inequality, diversity, oppression and racism and why they need to be actively addressed from the ground up.
