Modibo Kadalie has spent nearly six decades as an activist,
organizer, teacher, and scholar in the civil rights, Black power, and
Pan-African movements. In this collection of interviews and public
talks, he reflects on the sit-ins, boycotts, strikes, urban
rebellions, and anticolonial movements that have animated the
late-twentieth and early-twenty-first centuries. Kadalie demonstrates
how the forms of direct democracy that have evolved through these
freedom struggles present the promise of a future defined by social
liberation as well as ecological healing.
radical, and iconoclastic book connects Black liberation struggles to
ecological activism in the era of climate change, calling on present
and future generations of activists to reconnect with the spirit of
past movements without lionizing individual leaders or lending
legitimacy to any governments or politicians.
