Editorial Reviews

Most people knew Abe Osheroff as an activist -- from the frontlines of the Spanish Civil War to the picket lines of the U.S. labor movement, from the struggles for civil rights in Mississippi to the work for human rights in Nicaragua. For most of his 92 years, Osheroff threw himself into the fray with rare energy and enthusiasm. In this riveting documentary, Osheroff reflects on the meaning of that activism and the ideas that animated his actions. Osheroff's insights come out in interviews, footage of his engaging talks with students, and in a moving conversation with the legendary Uruguayan writer/activist Eduardo Galeano. Also featured is poet/essayist Martín Espada's reading of his powerful poem about Osheroff's life and vision. Osheroff, a truly organic intellectual, he shares the wisdom built up over a lifetime of commitment to the "radical humanism" that defined his politics and philosophy.

This biography of a great American activist sheds light on a part of American history that is too seldom remembered or taught. Abe Osheroff, a Jewish boy from Brooklyn, grew up participating in the great liberal battles of the early 20th century. As a youth, he participated in "move-in" of evicted tenants, a battle that foreshadows the current Occupy Wall Street's battles for foreclosed-on homeowners. As a yount man, he joined the hundreds of idealistic Americans who volunteered through the Abraham Lincoln Brigade to fight for the Spanish republic against the fascist (and ultimately successful) insurrection of Francisco Franco. From the time he returned from Spain, Abe Osheroff fought for civil rights, for justice to Nicaragua and for many other social issues. He was, to the last, a fighter who never gave up and never lost his sense of humor or perspective. His story is inspirational.
