"Freedom is still more expansive than civil rights."
I have been doing a lot of thinking lately about what was excluded from my education. Why are some voices or contributions left out? Is it simply a factor of a formula that there are only so many hours in a day, so many days in Black History mon...

Of course Davis is brilliant, but this book is cobbled together out of speech transcripts and mediocre, reletively shallow interviews in order to get it on shelves quickly.
