Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Davis's arguments for justice are formidable. . . . The power of her historical insights and the sweetness of her dream cannot be denied. New York Times
“Tackles police brutality, racism, capitalism, and every issue that starts local and ends global. Freedom Is a Constant Struggle is a great listen for a wide-lens view on social issues.” BookRiot (audio review)
“Activist and scholar Angela Davis…narrates this collection of essays, interviews, and speeches with an authorial but benevolent tone as one who has witnessed directly and indirectly so much of the inequality in the US and beyond. Her passion about these matters resonates in her raspy voice, which reflects a fierce desire to call out those forces that would deny anyone freedom…Davis’ audiobook succeeds in capturing what has been done to ensure freedom and what still needs doing.” AudioFile
“Here is someone worthy of the Ancestors who delivered her. Angela Davis has stood her ground on every issue important to the health of our people and the planet. It is impossible to read her words or hear her voice and not be moved to comprehension and gratitude for our incredible luck in having her with us.” Alice Walker, Pulitzer Prize winner and New York Times bestselling author
Freedom Is a Constant Struggle is a small book that will be a huge help in daily life and action, from exposing the ‘prison industrial complex’ that she named long ago to understanding that leaders are only leaders if they empower others.” Gloria Steinem, New York Times bestselling author
