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.”
