Publisher's Summary

In these newly collected essays, interviews, and speeches, world-renowned activist and scholar Angela Y. Davis illuminates the connections between struggles against state violence and oppression throughout history and around the world.

Reflecting on the importance of black feminism, intersectionality, and prison abolitionism for today's struggles, Davis discusses the legacies of previous liberation struggles - from the black freedom movement to the South African antiapartheid movement. She highlights connections and analyzes today's struggles against state terror, from Ferguson to Palestine.

Facing a world of outrageous injustice, Davis challenges us to imagine and build the movement for human liberation. And in doing so, she reminds us that "freedom is a constant struggle."

    "Timely, Relevant, Informative Book"

    Angela Davis weaves so much history into this short but relevant read. This book can serve as a foundation for grounding any social justice work. I only wish she'd write an addendum in light of the most recent presidential election and legislative acts. Highly recommended reading.

    Story
    "A brilliant listen, far too short."

    Angela provides a rare perspective, containing an urgent message requiring action. Her message solidifies transnational solidarity regarding anti-blackness, feminism, anti-militarization and other forms of state-institutional-violence. Through the series of her collected interviews and speeches, one can imagine an overhaul of division, and seek another world in which is possible. Thank you Haymarket, Chicago for making this endeavor a reality.

    "Indispensable Listening for a New World"

    Davis's perspective on the interrelationship of the global struggles for peace, racial equity and freedom is crucial to any activist's or socially conscious individual's true understanding of what we need to address the ills of society.

    "The voice of God"

    Davis hammers home the commonalities in the global struggle for progress. Prison eradication, the proliferation of G4S, and the need for collectivism in the age of individualism are all topics I have taken away from this book.

    "Liberal Bullshit"
    What disappointed you about Freedom Is a Constant Struggle?

    There was so much liberal bullshit, I tried to listen to it but there are so many lies and misrepresentations and inaccuracies that I just could not listen anymore.


    What could Angela Y. Davis have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Learn the truth, Ger a life, quite writing and see a shrink.


    What didn’t you like about Angela Davis and Coleen Marlo ’s performance?

    It was boring, monotone, very poor delivery.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    None whatsoever.


    Any additional comments?

    I want my money back and my time.
