Item description for Someday We'll All Be Free by Kevin Powell, Stuart Thomson, Susan Carnicero, Peter Romary, Don Tennant, A. Peterson, John F. Schank & Michael Hayes...
Someday We'll All Be Free is the indispensable and passionate follow-up to Kevin Powell's best-selling essay collection, Who's Gonna Take The Weight? Manhood, Race, and Power in America. Here Powell widens his lens and skillfully dissects the dreams of American freedom and democracy in these early days of the 21st century. Be it the reelection of President George W. Bush, the colossal tragedy of September 11th and the policies and wars that have followed, or the historic destruction of the city of New Orleans before our very eyes, Powell tells us the uncomfortable truths about America, his country, and yours, too. These coolly observant essays, quilted together, firmly establish why Powell is widely considered one of America's brightest leaders and thinkers.

Reviews - What do customers think about Someday We'll All Be Free?
work of a thinker Apr 8, 2007
I must say I read some review on here on Kevin Powells other works, and from that I thought I would want to read this book. Some how the book ended up in my hands and I thought Id read a chapter as I do all books before I purchase them. After only one page I knew I had to read this book. So its on my to read list. His words shows he is reallly thinking of waht life is. Much like the great book Life OUt of Context by Walter Mosley Powell's new piece is one worth studying.
