UCSB Reads Author Event with Patrisse Cullors When They Call You a Terrorist: A Black Lives Matter Dialogue
Artist, organizer and educator Patrisse Cullors is co-founder and executive director of the Black Lives Matter Global Network, founder of Dignity and Power Now and co-author (with asha bandele) of When They Call You a Terrorist: A Black Lives Matter Memoir. A Los Angeles native, she co-founded the global Black Lives Matter movement in 2013 after sparking the viral Twitter hashtag. The movement has since expanded into an international organization with dozens of chapters around the world campaigning against anti-Black racism. Cullors’ work for Black Lives Matter was recognized in Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential People of 2020 list and its 100 Women of the Year 2020.
This event will be followed by a Q&A moderated by Dr. Omise'eke Natasha Tinsley, UC Santa Barbara Professor of Black Studies.
