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 anti-Apartheid 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."

Keep on fighting!

An interesting introduction (for me) to Angela Davis -- focused on connections, each separate piece also circles around thoughts shared in other pieces, so that the whole book is almost a weaving. I was intrigued to keep hearing different ways Davis applied her thoughts and beliefs to so many issues, which revealed how "different" struggles are actually at their root connected and can benefit by being fought together.

Pure Garbage in my opinion...

If you're already familiar with the work of Angela Davis, this collection will feel sparse and unimportant. If you're not, it could be a good way to dive in, though I would recommend YouTube interviews and panels over what is present here. The interviews lack the compelling and engaged back-and-forth that make interviews worth reading (horrible interviewer!) and the ideas (which draw heavily from Davis's past work) repeat themselves endlessly. These thoughts deserve a better home!
