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.
