BPL EVENT: Patrisse Cullors — An Abolitionist’s Handbook

Black Lives Matter movement co-founder and New York Times bestselling author of When They Call You a Terrorist offers a provocative and groundbreaking blueprint for modern-day abolitionists primed to elevate protest into system-changing action meant to transform our world. Presented in partnership with the Museum of African American History.

Patrisse Cullors in An Abolitionist’s Handbook: 12 Steps to Change Yourself and the World (St. Martin’s Press) charts a framework for how everyday activists can effectively fight for an abolitionist present and future. Filled with relatable pedagogy on the history of abolition, a reimagining of what reparations look like for Black lives and real-life anecdotes from Cullors, her new book provides a bold, innovative, and humanistic approach to how to be a modern-day abolitionist. Cullors asks us to lead with love, fierce compassion, and precision.
