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."

"Activist and scholar Angela Davis tackles our 21st-century notion of freedom--who has it, who is denied it, and the powerful forces that corrupt or distort it to marginalize individuals and groups. She narrates this collection of essays, interviews, and speeches with an authorial but benevolent tone as one who has witnessed directly and indirectly so much of the inequality in the U.S. and beyond. Her passion about these matters resonates in her raspy voice, which reflects a fierce desire to call out those forces that would deny anyone freedom. While details and anecdotes overlap in some areas, Davis's audiobook succeeds in capturing what has been done to ensure freedom and what still needs doing. L.E. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine"
