The writings in this book are a collection given by Ms.Davis. She dealswith a number of topics such as thespiraling arms race,the role of womenin present day politics,South Africa'sapartheid goverment,modern day feminists.In particular the speech given to graduating seniors at Berkley High sheurges them to continue the activism ofthe sixties not to lose sight of thesacrifices of her generation. I have read this book a number of timeseach time I read it I find something Ihad previously overlooked. I have tremendous respect for thisremarkable woman and her committment toher values. Messers Nixon and Reagen labled hera dangerous woman. Do you need a betterreason to embrace the wisdom of AngelaDavis?
