Weekly on-air readings from the UCSB Reads selection for 2021: When They Call You a Terrorist: A Black Lives Matter Memoir by Patrisse Cullors and asha bandele.
This annual program of the UCSB Library brings the campus and Santa Barbara communities together each year for dialogue about important topical issues while reading a common book. Starting on Thursday, February 11th, KCSB-FM revives our own on-air tradition by sharing chapters from the UCSB Reads text as voiced by volunteers from the UCSB community.
Tune in to 91.9 FM every Thursday at 530pm to hear selections from When They Call You a Terrorist, a personal account of this contemporary movement for racial justice and Black lives, which formed after the unpunished killing of young Trayvon Martin in Florida in 2013, and gained new prominence last year after the police slaying of George Floyd in Minnesota.
Cullors' memoir describes her life as a Black, queer woman who was raised in Los Angeles by a single, hardworking mother. She recounts her own experiences with racism in the criminal justice system, as well as the origins of Black Lives Matter, which was recently nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize.
