Overview

Internationally acclaimed Indian activists and visionaries S. Jagannathan and Krishnammal Jagannathan (India's "Joan of Arc", proclaims the Women's World Summit Foundation) are the subjects of this stirring oral biography. Coming from markedly different backgrounds, these two Gandhian revolutionaries played important roles in the struggle for Indian Independence, the nonviolent land reforms of the 1950s and 1960s, the struggle against untouchability, and are now fiercely engaged in a battle against the environmental destruction wrought by multinational aquaculture interests, partially funded by the World Bank, on the coast of south India. The Color of Freedom passionately captures the sweep of almost a century of Indian history, and the role of two extraordinary people as they personally engage a world hurtling from the feudal past into an uncompromising modernity.
