This collection of Davis's speeches and writings addresses the political and social changes of the past decade as they are concerned with the struggle for racial, sexual, and economic equality.
"The work of the political activist inevitably involves a certain tension between the requirement that positions be taken on current issues as they arise and the desire that one's contributions will somehow survive the ravages of time. In this sense the most difficult challenge facing the activist is to respond fully to the needs of the moment and to do so in such a way that the light one attempts to shine on the present will simultaneously illuminate the future."
—from the Introduction
"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 Book Review
