When the staff of a popular music app, Snoop, attend a company retreat at a beautiful, rustic mountain chalet in France, they were hoping for a weekend of mindfulness and bonding while skiing and cozying up around the fire.

When They Call You a Terrorist: A Black Lives Matter Memoir is a powerful book by the two women (Patrisse Khan-Cullers and Asha Bandele) who created the Black Lives Matter hashtag that inspired the movement. BLM is more than just a hashtag. This memoir follows Patrisse Khan-Cullors, not from the moment the hashtag burst on the public consciousness, but from her childhood growing up black to her discovery of her queer identity, personal relationships, and how she got to where she is today.
