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.
In this YA adaptation of the instant New York Times bestseller, Cullors demonstrate how it is possible to change the culture that declares innocent black life expendable.
"This memoir is a reflection on humanity, lauded as an empowering account of survival, strength, and resilience, and is the kind of call to action we need now more than ever."—Book Riot
"A gripping, much-needed memoir about a Black woman, a movement, and people fighting for freedom denied."—Kirkus Reviews
"This book is more than the origin story of BLM and more than Khan-Cullors's revolutionary journey. She creates space for difficult thoughts and conversations to begin."—School Library Journal
