UCSB Reads Author Event: Patrisse Cullors (Wed, May 12th @ 5pm)

The Department of Black Studies is honored to be a campus partner with UCSB's Arts & Lectures "Race to Justice" Series. The programming is absolutely amazing! This event is presented as part of UCSB Reads, sponsored by the UCSB Library and the Office of the Executive Vice Chancellor with additional support from UCSB Arts & Lectures and a variety of campus and community partners.

We will be joined by Patrisse Cullors and a Q&A with Omise'eke Natasha Tinsley, UCSB professor in the Department of Black Studies for the UCSB Reads Author Event. “Artist, organizer and educator Patrisse Cullors is co-founder and executive director of the Black Lives Matter Global Network, founder of Dignity and Power Now and co-author (with asha bandele) of When They Call You a Terrorist: A Black Lives Matter Memoir. A Los Angeles native, she co-founded the global Black Lives Matter movement in 2013 after sparking the viral Twitter hashtag. The movement has since expanded into an international organization with dozens of chapters around the world campaigning against anti-Black racism. Cullors’ work for Black Lives Matter was recognized in Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential People of 2020 list and its 100 Women of the Year 2020.” (UCSB’s Arts and Lectures)

All of these events are free to UCSB students.
