From one of the co-founders of the Black Lives Matter movement comes a poetic memoir and reflection on humanity. Necessary and timely, Patrisse 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 meaningful, empowering account of survival, strength, and resilience, Patrisse Cullors and asha bandele seek to change the culture that declares innocent black life expendable.

The writer's analysis of the systematic and institutional racism in this country is spot on. Those in power complain that the poor aren't doing anything to help themselves but obstacles are constantly placed in their path to move forward. I would recommend this as mandatory reading for junior high and high school students.

This is such a powerful and heart wrenching book. Everyone needs to read this one. And we, as a society, need to do better.

The co-founder of Black Lives Matter tells the story of her life, the beginnings of the BLM movement, its mission, and the deep racial divides in the country. A good read for anyone looking for a more clear picture than what we're often given by the idea. Introduction by Angela Davis.
