Freedom Dreams, Twenty Years Later



Freedom Dreams, Twenty Years Later

When historian Robin D. G. Kelley published his seminal book Freedom Dreams: The Black Radical Imagination in 2002, he hoped to inspire the racial justice activists of time to find hope in the ideas of visionaries like Malcolm X and CLR James.

Poet and activist Aja Monet writes in the foreword of the new, 20th-anniversary edition of Freedom Dreams, “Twenty years later, the truths revealed [in Kelley’s book] remain relevant and necessary, especially in the thick paralyzing despair of a global pandemic.”

 

Rising Up with Sonali is a radio and television show that brings progressive news coverage rooted in gender and racial justice to a wide audience. Rising Up With Sonali was built on the foundation of Sonali Kolhatkar's earlier show, Uprising, which became the longest-running drive-time radio show on KPFK in Los Angeles hosted by a woman. RUS airs on Free Speech TV every weekday.
