Patrisse Khan-Cullors to discuss her Black Lives Matter memoir on ‘Horizonte’
Feb. 14, 2018
Patrisse Khan-Cullors, author of “When They Call You a Terrorist: A Black Lives Matter Memoir,” will discuss her book tomorrow night on “Horizonte.”
Growing up in a Los Angeles immigrant suburb, Khan-Cullors talks about being young and living in an over-policed area where many people were over-incarcerated. She remembers what it was like to be handcuffed at age 12, and watch her brothers be directly criminalized.
“I realized that our communities were only given criminalization,” Khan-Cullors says. “We weren’t given after school programs, care and dignity. [There was only] a path that was focused on incarcerating our communities.”
The full interview will be shown on “Horizonte” on Thursday, Feb. 15 at 11:30 p.m.
