Overview

Challenging us to recognize our "unfinished" selves, Freire's uplifting message urges citizens, students, parents, and teachers to discover new horizons of hope and possibility for a better world. Connecting the personal with the political, Freire's voice is as profound as it is inspiring, guiding us through the everyday acts of observation and critical thinking that link personal creativity with the prospects of a just and more humane society. One's capacity to dream, to reach, and to engage with a troubles world are the essence of a meaningful and liberating life.
