* When They Call You A Terrorist by Patrisse Khan-Cullors and Asha Bandele

Half memoir, half impassioned cry for change, When They Call You a Terrorist: A Black Lives Matter Memoir has a powerful half: the memoir. If anyone ever wondered how bad racism really is when it comes to law-making, policing, and the justice system (not to mention everyday life), the first author’s story is a sad eye opener. But the systematic, searing assignation to racism of each and every problem she and other African Americans encounter  weakens her argument and may make many avoid the book entirely. It’s too bad because the personal story is so strong.
